Mafia racket boss Lucky Luciano contributed to America’s war effort by helping to keep  enemy agents from entering the New York waterfront,  maybe the  presence of the Mafia  will  reduce the risk of ISIS infiltration in the island  of Sicily

 The deputy chair of the National Anti-Mafia Commission said Wednesday that organized crime in Sicily might keep the island region safe from Islamist terrorist infiltration, reports Ansa News.

“I am not surprised Sicily may be thought to be not at risk of Islamic State (ISIS) infiltration due to the presence of the Mafia,” Claudio Fava told reporters at a regional anti-Mafia commission hearing.

“We’ve already seen that during the years of (domestic) terrorism in Italy”.

In the mid-70s Cosa Nostra exercised “armed surveillance” over Sicily, Fava said.
“It’s no accident there were no kidnappings, and when they did occur they were carried out not to extort money but as Mafia punishments”.
