Giovanni Gambino, the son of Mafia crime boss John Gambino, warned ISIS terrorists not to attack New York City, because the Mafia will take them out in a New York minute. Giovanni says the Mafia is better equipped than the FBI or the U.S. Office of Homeland Security to protect New Yorkers from an attack by radical Islamic jihadists.
“[The FBI and Homeland Security] often act too late, or fail to see a complete picture of what’s happening due to a lack of ‘human intelligence,’” the Brooklyn-based Gambino explained in a statement. Giovanni said the Mafia has acute knowledge of the movements of locals in New York, so they’re more aware of potential terrorist activity than federal or local authorities.
Giovanni pointed out there are no underground radical Islamic cells in Sicily, and the island has not been the target of any terrorist attacks even though Italy has a sizeable Muslim population. This is because ISIS fears the Mafia, said Gambino.
Giovanni says New Yorkers should not fear for their safety because of the Mafia presence in the Big Apple.
The world is dangerous today, but people living in New York neighborhoods with Sicilian connections should feel safe.
We make sure our friends and families are protected from extremists and terrorists, especially the brutal psychopathic organization that calls itself the Islamic State.”
Gambino admitted the Mafia has a bad reputation, but said it also has a good side, which it hopes to showcase as radical Islam spreads across the globe. “The Mafia has a bad reputation, but much of that’s undeserved,” said Gambino. “As with everything in life, there are good, bad and ugly parts. The rise of global terrorism gives the Mafia a chance to show its good side.”
Giovanni, the author of “Prince of Omerta, Undercover Secret,” said Saddam Hussein was a huge fan of “The Godfather.” Gambino said he’s disappointed the film’s stars, Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, have not spoken out to denounce radical Islam and ISIS.
“I’m disappointed in Hollywood actors that they’re not stepping up and speaking out in public, especially these guys who want to play the big boss in gangster movies,” said Gambino. “Send a strong message that we are all together in fighting this monster called ISIS.”
Giovanni Gambino was born in Sicily, Italy, and moved to Brooklyn in 1988. Giovanni’s father, John, was released from jail in 2005 after serving time for drug trafficking and racketeering. John Gambino currently resides in Italy.
