Albanian Mafia fueling Al Qaeda terrorist activity in US: Kosovo schools and orphanages open

Chief perpetrators of drug and people smuggling, human body part and weapons sales, sex slavery, passport theft, forgery, abductions and murder, the Albanian Mafia remains to be domineering in their criminal activity both domestically and abroad.

“The Albanian criminal enterprises, operating largely in New York and other Eastern seaboard cities, represent a major challenge to federal agents because of their propensity for violence and brutality,” FBI officials indicate.

"They are a hardened group, operating with reckless abandon," said Chris Swecker, the FBI assistant director for the Criminal Investigative Division according to a CNN report.

Interpol stated that “Kosovo Albanian Mafia hold the largest share of the heroin market in Switzerland, in Austria, in Belgium, in Germany, in Hungary, in the Czech Republic, in Norway, and in Sweden.”

The head of Sweden’s anti drug unit believes that the gangs supplied “hundreds, maybe thousands, of kilos of heroin” to the Scandinavian countries. The Albanian Muslim Mafia clans are dispersed in Kosovo and Macedonia as well as Albania proper.

The Italian Mafia and the Albanian Mafia

"I hate these f**** Albanians," a captain in the Genovese crime family was captured saying on tape. The captain continued,

"If you have a beef with them you have to kill them right away. There's no talking to them."

Reports indicate that the Albanian Mafia including immigrants from Kosovo has replaced the Italian La Cosa Nostra Mafia, an offshoot of the Sicilian Mafia.

To understand the capacity and how far the arms reach of the Albanian Mafia is to understand briefly the magnitude of La Cosa Nostra aka The Italian-American Mafia:

There are five main New York City Mafia families, known as the Five Families: the Gambino, Lucchese, Genovese, Bonanno and Colombo families.

The Italian-American Mafia aka La Cosa Nostra dominated organized crime in the U.S. It used this status to maintain control over much of the organized crime activity in Chicago, Detroit, Boston, Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Providence, New Jersey, and New York City, as well as in other cities in the Northeastern United States and across the country, such as Las Vegas, Tampa, New Orleans, Miami, Kansas City, Milwaukee, and many others.

La Cosa Nostra often referred to as the “original Mafia,” was at one time thought to be one of the largest organized crime groups in the United States and held dominance of the National Crime Syndicate.

The Albanian Mafia has been thought to greatly exceed this dominant power and poses as an outstanding figure as one of the most violent crime organizations in operation particularly with their strong connections in Europe union. 

Replacing La Cosa Nostra in its rank, size, power and figure in organized crime, the Albanian Mafia holds itself as a domineering force in the Mafia underworld.

Further, a predominant Catholic Mafia is being replaced by a predominant Muslim Albanian FIS.

The Gambino crime family recruits ethnic Albanian assassins

In the 1970s, the Italian Mafia, more specifically the Gambino family recruited and employed Albanians as couriers, transporters, and more significantly assasins as a result of their proficiency.

By 1996, ethnic Albanians were the main assassins for the Gambino family.

At least two of the Gambino Family’s major players or “high level associates,” including Zef Mustafa  were of Albanian enthnicity. Mustafa allegedly made over $700 million for the Gambino family, was later arrested for a $19 million dollar internet heist, and subsequently released on a $5 milliion bond disappearing from the United States.


“The ethnic Albanian mafia is very powerful and extremely violent,” said Kim Kliver, chief investigator for organized crime with the Danish National Police.

“If you compare them to the Italian Mafia, the Albanians are stronger and not afraid of killing.”

"The Albanian criminals were special from the beginning," said Francesca Marcelli, an organized-crime investigator for the Italian government.

Marcelli continued:

"When they started appearing here in 1993, they were much different than other immigrants. They have strong motivations and are very violent. Some of them actually pulled machine guns on the son of an Italian Mafioso. To do that in Italy is unbelievable."

In the north of Italy, the Albanians have taken the prostitution racket away from the country's toughest Mafia branch, the 'Ndrangheta.

A representative from the Polish Mob in 2002 was found saying:

“I’m willing to do business with just about anyone. Dominicans, Blacks. Italians. Asian gangs. Russians. But won’t go near the Albanian mob. The Albanians are too violent and too unpredictable.”

Ties to Kosovo Liberation Army and Al Qaeda

Alleged ties to Al-Qaeda, the Albanian Mafia, one of the most powerful criminal organizations in the United States and Europe stretches throughout the United States, Canada, Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, Serbia.

The FBI believes largely that the Albanian Mafia could be involved in “terrorist financing,” adding more specifically, “ties to organizations suspected of involvement in terrorist financing.”

Even more so, support of Al Qaeda prove notable in the following:

Yossef Bodansky, former Director of House Task Force on Terrorism, committed to saying,

“The Albanian mob will not commit acts of terrorism…but will aid Al Qaeda..The role of the Albanian Mafia-tightly connected to the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA a declared terrorist organization) is laundering money, providing technology, safe houses and other support to terrorists within this country.”

Most if not all of the KLA has been trained and financially supported by Al Qaeda.

(Kosovo was marked as a potential recruiting ground for Islamic extremists. The large numbers of young Muslims living in abject poverty in Kosovo plays ideally into the hands of terrorist recruiters. Al-Qaeda is extremely interested in the region because the Muslim families are large and teenagers make up half of Kosovo’s population, making Kosovo a prime reservoir for the recruitment of young Mujahedeen.)

  • 24 Wahhabi mosques , 14 orphanages and 98 primary and secondary Wahhabi funded schools have been built in Kosovo since 1999. Wahhabism Islam across the spectrum from revival and reform to global jihad is thought to be the chief spiritual source of the Al Qaeda terrorists.

(Chairman Kyl, Senate Subcommittee on Terrorism, Technology and Homeland Security on Thursday, June 26, 2003 stated: “I come before this body to describe how adherents of Wahhabism, the most extreme, separatist, and violent form of Islam, and the official sect in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, have come to dominate Islam in the U.S. “)

  • Djamel Beghala, Al Qaeda operative, arrested in Dubai was found with a manufactured Albanian false passport. Under interrogation, Beghala identified a major European Al Qaeda cell planning to blow up the US Embassy in Paris.
  • Al Qaeda assassins of Ahmed Shah Massoud possessed passports doctored by the Albanian Mafia. The assassination of Massoud is considered to have a strong connection to the September 11, 2001 attacks on U.S. soil. Massoud had warned against a potential terrorist attack in his speech to the European Parliament several months earlier.

Krasniqi Albanian crime family, the KLA and Al Qaeda

The US District Court in New Jersey charged 6 (six) on terrorism related charges directly related to a pattern of Islamist terrorist support operations by Bosnian and Albanian radicals in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

The men were charged with conspiring to conduct the attack were within area where Bosnian Islamists worked with “Islamic charities” to develop terrorist training operation before and after September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States.

Of the 6 (six) men, 4 were ethnic Albanians, 3 of the 6 are members of the Duka family.  The Duka family operate a roofing business in Brooklyn, New York, demographically close to Cherry Hill, New Jersey, the home of Florin Krasniqi.

Krasniqi in 1998-99, raised $30 million from the Albanian community in the United States for the KLA and smuggled hundreds of high-powered American sniper rifles to Kosovo for guerrillas, which were distributed by his extended family clan in the region.

Krasniqi, an Albanian born from the southern most part of Kosovo, was a major supplier of weapons from the US to the KLA, through Niam Behzloulzi aka Houlzi.

Houlzi a major KLA figure linked to Al Qaeda, was the 2nd ranking leader in the KLA providing explosives for terrorist attacks on Madrid in March of 2004 and in London in July of 2005.

Arrests of the Krasniqi crime family 2010

In June 2010 the FBI and NYPD arrested heads of the Krasniqi operating primarily out of New York, Connecticut, Michigan and elsewhere on charges from murder to kidnapping to drugs to racketeering:

  • Bruno Krasniqi
  • Saimir Krasniqi
  • Erkliant Sula
  • Skender Cakoni
  • Gjovalin Berisha
  • Nazih Nasser
  • Gentian Nikolli
  • Shkelzen Balidemaj
  • Plaurent Cela
  • Albert Tamali

Gentian Caro, Marjan Tamali, and JoAnna Pakulski were arrested by the Royal Canadian Police. Caro was extradited to the United States; Tamali and Pakulski are awaiting extradition.

Dukagin Nikollaj and Vsi Lnu are still at large according to the FBI.

  • July 2, 2010, Sr. Aide to Deputy Prime Minister of Albania, 27-year-old Almir Rrapo was arrested on charges of murder and racketeering. Rrapo was a senior member of Krasniqi.
  • August 24, 2010, Krasniqi member, Florian Veshi, 26 years old, was also arrested.

    great article.. the albanians never had any connection to the al-qaeda especially the KLA. the KLA fought against serbia and were such a small army with less than 10thousand soldiers, you should read some history. the U.S. were the biggest supporter of kosova after the war and not the Islamics.

    What a gaff.. we handed Kosovo to the control of a Muslim terrorist group so they could do the same things to the Christians living there that the Serbs were falsley accused of. The Albanians in Kosovo will only be tame for as long as the money keeps flowing in their "country" from the USA and EU. Their backwards prefuedal society will never be fully "independent" from international hand outs. Once those dries up, so will thier gratitude and loyalty to there naive liberators - We'll soon see more Albanian born muslim terror like the Fort Dix incident we (Thank God) manged to stop.

    Even though our "thanks" fromt he Muslim world for invervention on behalf og Balkan muslims was pretty well illustrated on 9/11 - a wierd group of global governement types and muppets og George Soros insist we continune to support these creeps.

    It is interesting what you write, why dont you just update the article on wikipedia, because I cannot even cite this article because your website is blocked. There are multiple issues with your article : 1. you are mixing up the dates in random order. 2 you are citing slobodans personal site that is a copy and paste load of junk, cite original sources. Also you seem to be a bit biased. I have had good experiences with kosovo and I did not see much of radical islam there. There are some saudis who trying to convert them, but for the most part the people of kosovo love america and all want iphones and laptops, not guns.

    Albanians aren't running anything for too long. Know why??? They are too agressive, stubborn and reckless. Ask any Colombian Cartel member what that means, and he'll fill you in. Flash, they don't last. Italians would never goto war with Albanians because they'll goto war with themselves and the rest is history. Why waste you time???

    The thought of this author being biased struck me as well. I'm currently an EU worker in Kosovo and have been working here for the past 4 years. Considering I am kept up to-date on almost anything happening in this country I have quite extensive knowledge on what "terrorist" activities would be going on, and I am yet to hear of any. Your statement of Kosovo being a terrorist breeding ground is extremely non-factual. Lets look at it this way, I have currently seen many, many many, more Chinese here then Middle Easterners. So does that mean Kosovo is also a communist breeding ground? No that would be stupid to assume. I have many more disputes with your article as well but I'll end my comment with this one. The title of your article leads the reader to believe that the Albanian Mafia is funding terrorist activity in the U.S. That couldn't be further from the truth. I am baffled as to what you could read that would not only lead you to put something like that in the article but to put it in the title. If you have any knowledge whatsoever on the Albanian Mafia or any other crime organization that originated in other regions of the world then you would know that what money they send is sent back to the region they come from. In this case back to the Balkans(and not to fund terrorism). I had to re-write this several times due to the limit so I will conclude with this. Do more then just a quick wikipedia search when you are to write an article that slanders an enitre ethnicity.

    You are confusing Albanians with Kosovars. The Kosovars are Albanian-speaking people, but are not Albanians. They are hard-core Muslims, who hate Christians. All the names that you mention here are Kosovars not Albanians. The Kosovars and the Albanisn hate each other more than the Serbs and Kosovars hate each other.
    When speaking about Albanians, think of Mother Teresa, think of Christians and Catholics , not of Kosovars. The Kosovars are Turks who were left behind in 1912 when the Ottoman Empire left the Balkans. Most of them speak Turkish better than Albanian. Their customs are Turkish and their religion is Islam. They have called time and again to kill Albanian Catholics and Orthodox in Kosovo.
    This is just the beginning of what is to come from Kosovar, Macedonian and Bosnian Muslims!

    My freind you are very wrong. I am from kosovo and i would most likely 100% would call myself albanian. First of all we are not kosovar. Second of all i am not serb, mac, bosn, or turk. You wana know why? Search up the history of kelmend my last name. We are ethnic albanians just like you but our region has ben overuled so many times that we were forced to become muslims just like when we were forced to become cristian, catholic, and orthodox by many other countries. Also if you were truely albanian, albanians dont care about religeon. WE ARE ALBANIAN and thats it. Religeon is propaganda to munipulate others. And since your saying were turks. Than you must be greks even worser. Theyve done so many bad stuff to albanians. Also i realy do not understand why an albanian would say this. We albanians in kosovo love the US, and mostly Shqipri. And why would my name be Shkumbin: the river in albania. and fathers name Ylber: meaning rambo in albanian and mothers name Aferdita: meanig close day ( afer-dita) then my sibilings nora meaning light in albanian and vera meaning summer if i were turk. My freind we albanians in kosov are brothers with albanians in shqipri. We are sopose to soport one another. We are albanians, illyrians, and palsagians. We are not orthodox, cristian nor muslim. We all believe in god but we are albanian.
