Gambino clan Albanian mafia in cooperation with Islamic terrorists in the Balkans

The Albanian Mafia rule in New York City is so well known and wide open that the recent „Grand Theft Auto IV“ and Grand Theft Auto WIKI games are patterned on their violence….the Albanian mob appears as the main antagonist, shipping stolen cars back to Europe without Petrovic’s permission, retrieved from „

In Italy, Albanian organized crime gangs appear to control the car trafficking market. One method they employ is to deliberately drive into a car and then when the driver stops to assess the damage to his vehicle, they take the car by force. The cars are then exported to Tirana. A car stolen in central Italy in the morning can be in Albania with its new owner that same evening, Interpol Report.“The vehicles are not only stolen for their own sake; sometimes they are trafficked to finance other crimes,” according to the international police organization Interpol. Europol’s report describes Europe’s stolen-car industry as a complex network of professionals that includes car thieves, technicians, mechanics, document forgers, drivers, and unscrupulous car dealers. These thieves have learned how to disable immobilizers, locate and eliminate tracking devices, and alter VIN numbers, then shipping the vehicles to Dubai UAE for resale.

According to a CNN report the FBI „Officials said ethnic Albanians (MUSLIMS) from Kosovo, Macedonia and Montenegro“ make up the emerging American criminal cartel and „represent a major challenge to federal agents because of their propensity for violence and brutality.“ This statement comes several months after Amnesty International declared NATO-administered Kosovo province a hotbed of Albanian organized crime activity (AOC).

The main assassins for the Gambino crime family were ethnic Albanians. Gambino’s Sammy Bull Brovano’s go-to „clipper“, for example, was an ethnic Albanian, Zef Mustafa, whose notoriety for murder and racket was exceeded only by his love of alcohol: was let out on a $5 million bond and has since disappeared from the US.

The most prominent Albanian criminal is Daut Kadriovski, a drug kingpin that managed to escape German prison in 1993, and is believed to be in the US where sources say he is operating through several types of businesses in New York and Philadelphia.

Albanian Mafia and alQaeda
The Twaik Group and Rawasin Media Productions, both based in Riyadh, the Saudi capital, have served as fronts for the Saudi General Intelligence Directorate, according to an inquiry by Germany’s foreign intelligence service, the BND, Twaik, a $100 million-a-year conglomerate, has diverse holdings inside and outside Saudi Arabia.

Twaik deposited more than $250,000 in bank accounts controlled by Mamoun Darkazanli, a Syrian-born Hamburg businessman and longtime Al Qaeda associate with close ties to the Sept. 11 hijackers during their years in the northern port city of Hamburg. Abdulrahman Al-Fahhad, then the Twaik executive responsible for the company’s rental-car operations in the Balkans, acknowledged hiring Darkazanli in 1995 to supply cars from Germany for Twaik’s branch office in Albania. The money, Al-Fahhad said, had been for Darkazanli’s use in purchasing those cars. Al-Fahhad also acknowledged hiring Seyam to manage Twaik’s rental-car office in nearby Bosnia-Herzegovina.

At Durres, we once again see the suspicious convergence of Albanian Muslim Mafia and the al-Qaeda, both involved in legal and illegal dealings and both aiming at a same thing: detaching Kosovo from Serbia and internationally legitimizing it as Muslim.

At Durres, then, one finds that the Kharafi Group had a $20 million contract for the Durres „port improvement“ and Kharafi’s have bin Laden connections because his Albanian point man, al-Qadi, had a company that operated in Albania, the Karavan, that was a partner with the Kharafi Group.

„The Albanian government has frozen the assets of Karavan in two banks in Albania, the International Trade Bank of Malaysia and the Arab-Albanian-Islamic Bank, as well as the buildings under construction,“ says a 2002 Report Prepared by the Federal Research Division, Library of Congress under an Interagency Agreement with the Department of Defense.

According to Serbian spies, Yasin al-Qadi had an account in a Swiss bank into which Albanian nationals were depositing their money to finance a war in Kosovo. Yassin al-Qadi was known to have used that Swiss account to transfer moneys to various places where Jihad has been waged and from that account in Switzerland, al Qadi allegedly transferred the money to his Arab-Albanian Islamic Bank in Albania account, out of which he paid the MAK Albania for some fictitious construction contract work that was never done but instead used the contract to move the money into the vaults of Dardania Bank located in the Kosovo’s capital, Pristina.According to the World Bank, Dardania Bank was registered in 1993 by the so-called „government-in-exile“ of Kosovo and Athens based newspaper Eleftherotypia claims that the bank was „created with German assistance (2.400.000 marks)“.World Bank also says that Dardania Bank accepts foreign exchange and makes small loans but „is not expected to play a significant role in private enterprise financing.“Apparently, the World Bank got it wrong because in April of 2000 the Dardania Bank got renovated and became the proto-Central Bank of the Albanian Mafia in Kosovo:The work „has been virtually completed on the Dardania Bank [in Kosovo] building which is now occupied by the Central Fiscal Authority,“ a proto-Central Bank for the Kosovo Albanian criminal enterprise under auspices of UNMIK „department responsible for the overall financial management of the Kosovo budget and the budgets of the municipalities that together form the Kosovo Consolidated Budget.“

Thanks to the UNMIK, Albanian mafia and al-Qaeda got themselves a central bank in the heart of Europe, funded by Afghan heroin money and, according to the plan by Marti Ahtisaari, soon to be internationally legitimized with rights to enter World Bank and IMF!

Al Qaeda’s Balkan Links
Wall Street Journal Europe | November 1, 2001 | Marcia Christoff Kurop

The Balkans‘ uncharacteristically silent exit from the world stage as the most prominent international hot spot of the last decade belies its status as a major recruiting and training center of Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda network. By feeding off the region’s impoverished republics and taking root in the unsettled diplomatic aftermath of the Bosnia and Kosovo conflicts, al Qaeda, along with Iranian Revolutionary Guard-sponsored terrorists, have burrowed their way into Europe’s backyard.

For the past 10 years, the most senior leaders of al Qaeda have visited the Balkans, including bin Laden himself on three occasions between 1994 and 1996. The Egyptian surgeon turned terrorist leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri has operated terrorist training camps, weapons of mass destruction factories and money-laundering and drug-trading networks throughout Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Turkey and Bosnia. This has gone on for a decade. Many recruits to the Balkan wars came originally from Chechnya, a jihad in which Al Qaeda has also played a part.

These activities have been exhaustively researched by Yossef Bodansky, the former director of the U.S. House of Representatives‘ Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare. The February testimony of an Islamist ringleader associated with the East Africa bombings have also helped throw light on these actions.

They have however been disguised under the cover of dozens of „humanitarian“ agencies spread throughout Bosnia, Kosovo and Albania. Funding has come from now-defunct banks such as the Albanian-Arab Islamic Bank and from bin Laden’s so-called Advisory and Reformation Committee. One of his largest Islamist front agencies, it was established in London in 1994.

Narco-Jihad Culture


As we approached Pristina I was struck by the number of satellite dishes on all the apartment blocks and buildings. I did not have a satellite dish on my house in Ireland. I was paying for my own postgraduate studies in the National University of Ireland in Dublin and at the same time I was paying a hefty mortgage on my house. A satellite dish was certainly not a priority and was a luxury I could not afford at that time. In briefings prior to my departure I had been led to believe that the ethnic Albanians in Kosovo were poor and deprived yet this did not tally with the vista that opened up in front of me as we drove into Pristina. I came to realise that, as I got to know Kosovo better, why items such as satellite dishes were a priority. Here, where so many flats and apartments in urban areas were illegally seized and occupied, one did not worry about mortgage repayments and as I was to discover later, property belonged to those who wanted it and not to those who actually owned it. All property was up for grabs.

Press Release

The Centre for Peace in the Balkans

TORONTO, September 01, 2002 – The Centre for Peace in the Balkans responded to recent media information suggesting that a sister-city relationship may be considered between New York City and Srebrenica.

9-11: If only we could turn back the clock

„There were 9,000 soldiers killed in Srebrenica in the eyes of the U.N. soldiers, who were supposed to protect them. But they didn’t do shit. It’s like watching those airplanes bang into the World Trade Center and not trying to save those people.“ – Danis Tanovic, Academy Award winner, Directors World, March 25, 2002 .

Very influential circles in Bosnia and Herzegovina have recently initiated a plan to make Srebrenica the sister town of New York City in order to establish a symbolic link based on their perception of tragedy in face of terror. However, their suggested similarities are unfounded. Their plans are opportunistic attempts to propagate false information. Consider the following:

* Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman (the convicted mastermind behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing) was connected to the TWRA, a phony relief agency. Alija Izetbegovic, the President of Bosnia, provided a guarantee for Elfatih Hassanein (head of the TWRA and a personal friend of Izetbegovic) to open an account for the TWRA in Die Erste Österreich Bank in Vienna, Austria in 1993.

* Mohammed Haydar Zammar, the man who recruited key 9-11 hijacker, Mohammad Atta, to the Al-Qaeda network, based his terrorist activities in Bosnia . Zammar also brought two of Atta’s lieutenants into the Al-Qaeda network, namely Ramzi Binalshibh and Said Bahaji.

* Osama Bin Laden was given a Bosnian passport at the Bosnian Embassy in Vienna, Austria . Many other terrorists connected to the Al-Qaeda network also received blank Bosnian passports that enabled them to further propagate their illicit activities.

* Abu el Maali (Abdelkader Mokhtari), a senior representative of Al-Qaida, was based in Bosnia until recently. Just a few years ago, a US official called him a junior Osama Bin Laden.

* Bensayah Belkacem was arrested in October 2001 in Bosnia . Numbers stored in his mobile phone link him to at least one of Bin Laden’s top lieutenants.

The involvement of Al-Quaeda in radical Islamic activities and events in Bosnia is however, frequently mentioned in the media and US government reports. Unfortunately, it is also frequently overlooked.

New Yorkers and other victims of Osama Bin Laden’s terrorist attack were civilians and were not connected to a terrorist network in any way.

Proclaiming New York City and Srebrenica sister towns misrepresents the basis for forging such an important and symbolic relationship. Implying that the terror suffered by 9-11 victims in New York is similar to civil war suffering in Srebrenica is factually wrong. As such, a sister-city relationship between New York City and Srebrenica should not be established since it would be an insult to the memory of 9-11 victims.
