- A Mafia boss has warned ISIS against bringing their terror to New York
- He vows to fight the ISIS to protect their families, friends and the community
- He also expresses disappointment with actors Robert de Niro and Al Pacino for not speaking up against ISIS
The son of the key figure in the notorious Sicilian Mafia in New York has warned the Islamic State to stay away from Big Apple following the deadly terror attack in Paris last week that killed 130 people.
Giovani Gambino of the Gambino crime syndicate says they are ready to protect their friends and family from the terrorists and the latter should think twice about bringing their holy war to the Mafia community.
“The world is dangerous today, but people living in New York neighborhoods with Sicilian connections should feel safe,” Gambino said in an interview with NBC News in the wake of the Paris attack.
The Mafia boss doubted the ability of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Homeland Security to detect terror attack before it happens because of lack of what he called “human intelligence”, or the “knowledge of individual movements and actions that even the best technology can’t always capture.”
With a large network between the Mafia and its allied organizations connecting each other in the so-called “meaningful way”, Gambino said it would be difficult, if not impossible, for ISIS to penetrate their controlled territories in New York without brutal resistance.
“We make sure our friends and families are protected from extremists and terrorists, especially the brutal, psychopathic organization that calls itself the Islamic State,” he said. (Click here to read more)
