Italian Mafia Loves Corona Crisis – And Crime Will Spread Across The World | Isaiah 24:11

The precedent set in Italy will comes to America. It will seem to start out benign and before you know it, reality will set in.

They are no longer singing or dancing on the balconies,” said Salvatore Melluso, a priest at Caritas Diocesana di Napoli, a church-run charity in Naples. “Now people are more afraid – not so much of the virus, but of poverty. Many are out of work and hungry. There are now long queues at food banks.

  • Isaiah 24:11 There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone.
  • Eze 7:15 The sword is without, and the pestilence and the famine within: he that is in the field shall die with the sword; and he that is in the city, famine and pestilence shall devour him.
  • 2 Esdras 6:22 And suddenly shall the sown places appear unsown, the full storehouses shall suddenly be found empty:

  • 2 Esdras 15:58 They that be in the mountains shall die of hunger, and eat their own flesh, and drink their own blood, for very hunger of bread, and thirst of water.
  • 2Ki 6:25 And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass’s head was sold for fourscore pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a cab of dove’s dung for five pieces of silver.
  • 2 Esdras 16:19 Behold, famine and plague, tribulation and anguish, are sent as scourges for amendment.

Pursuant to Deu 30:7 & Ecc 1:9, the scripture above is a “pick your poison” type deal. Stay in a city, you are looking at famine and pestilence; stay outside of a city, you are looking at raiding parties by Esau’s military or fellow neighbors (Isa 3:5). The “modern day” sword spoken of in the scriptures is the gun.

Starvation is apparently the worse option (Lam 4:9) but the elect of the nation of Israel will have abundance (Isa 65:13, Job 5:22, Pro 13:25).

A few days into Italy’s lockdown, people across the country sang and played music from their balconies as they came together to say “Everything will be alright” (Andrà tutto bene).

Three weeks on, the singing has stopped and social unrest is mounting as a significant part of the population, especially in the poorer south, realise that everything is not all right.

They are no longer singing or dancing on the balconies,” said Salvatore Melluso, a priest at Caritas Diocesana di Napoli, a church-run charity in Naples. “Now people are more afraid – not so much of the virus, but of poverty. Many are out of work and hungry. There are now long queues at food banks.

Poverty and fears

There have been far fewer coronavirus deaths in Italy’s south compared with the worst-affected northern regions, but the pandemic is having a serious impact on livelihoods.

Tensions are building across the poorest southern regions of Campania, Calabria, Sicily and Puglia as people run out of food and money.

There have been reports of small shop owners being pressured to give food for free, while police are patrolling supermarkets in some areas to stop thefts.

The self-employed or those working on contracts that do not guarantee social benefits have lost salaries, and many small businesses may never reopen.

Paride Ezzine, a waiter in Palermo, Sicily, no longer gets his salary. “Obviously, due to the lockdown, the restaurant closed,” he said. “I have a wife and two children and we’re living off our savings. But I don’t know how long they will last. I asked my bank to postpone payment instalments – they said no. This situation is bringing us to our knees.”
