Biggest trafficker of women in Israeli history finally exposed

Rami Saban and another man convicted for trafficking.

ed note–lest we forget, the precedent for Jewish trafficking in women (as well as the first recorded act of ‘anti-semitism’) began with the biblical tale of Abraham, found in the very first book of the Jewish Torah, Genesis 12, 10-20

‘Now there was a famine in the land, and Abram went down to Egypt to live there for a while because the famine was severe. As he was about to enter Egypt, he said to his wife Sarai, “I know what a beautiful woman you are. When the Egyptians see you, they will say, ‘This is his wife.’ Then they will kill me but will let you live. Say you are my sister, so that I will be treated well for your sake and my life will be well treated on your account.”

When Abram came to Egypt, the Egyptians saw that Sarai was a very beautiful woman. And when Pharaoh’s officials saw her, they praised her to Pharaoh, and she was taken into his palace. He treated Abram well for her sake, and Abram acquired sheep and cattle, male and female donkeys, male and female servants, and camels.

But the Lord inflicted serious diseases on Pharaoh and his household because of Abram’s wife Sarai. So Pharaoh summoned Abram. “Why have you dealt with me so treacherously? he said. “Why didn’t you tell me she was your wife? Why did you say, ‘She is my sister,’ so that I took her to be my wife? Now then, here is your wife. Take her and go!” Then Pharaoh gave orders about Abram to his men, and they sent him on his way, with his wife and everything he had.


After over a year of legal battles, a Tel Aviv District Court judge on Monday allowed Haaretz to publish the name of David ‏(Dudi‏) Digmi, the biggest trafficker in women in Israeli history.

Judge Chaled Kabub described Digmi as the central figure in the largest network in Israel trafficking in women, with operations and connections overseas in the former Soviet Union, Britain, Cyprus and Belgium. Four of the network’s senior members were sentenced to three to 18 years in prison, and another member is serving 18 years in a Russian jail.

Despite Digmi being the senior figure in the network, the court put a gag order on publishing his name after he agreed to become a state’s witness and police informer. The agreement was unusual − 24 serious cases against Digmi were closed as part of the deal, including such alleged crimes as attempted rape, trafficking in women, pimping, extortion, drug possession and many more offenses committed over the course of more than a decade.

In return for closing the cases, Digmi agreed “not to commit any crime from the time of the signing [of the agreement] until the end of his trial, and not to commit any offense that would damage his credibility.”

But Digmi did not keep his promise. Even after signing the agreement with the state he continued to get in trouble. Already during the trial of his former confederates in trafficking, he joined forces with the head of a crime organization and committed extortion, according to court documents. While acting as a state’s witness and testifying, he was caught with drugs in his car and brass knuckles, and also was part-owner of a club in which a woman was arrested for soliciting sex.

However, a number of complaints to the police accusing Digmi of extortion and using threats of violence during the period after he signed the agreement were closed by the police.

Furthermore, the Tel Aviv district of the State Prosecutor’s Office, which dealt with the trafficking in women cases together with police, continued to support Digmi’s requests to the court to keep his involvement with law enforcementsecret. The prosecution claimed there was a danger to his life if his identity was exposed, which was more important than the public’s right to know.

Kabub accepted Haaretz’s arguments that there was a clear public interest in revealing Digmi’s identity. “Digmi is the central and dominant criminal in the affair and has a heavy criminal record. He received significant benefits in the closing of dozens of open investigations against him, among other things,” the judge said. In his decision, Kabub also said Digmi allegedly continued his criminal activities with others despite the agreement he signed to become an informer and state’s witness.

The trafficking case was exposed in 2009, and when Kabub convicted the defendants early last year, he described the affair as “one of the widest and most complex cases of trafficking in women heard in the courts in recent years, if not the largest.”

The network smuggled hundreds of young women from small villages and towns in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldavia and Uzbekistan after convincing them to come to Israel. They were told they would find work in Israel as waitresses or dancers in clubs. In some of the cases the traffickers, including Digmi, used severe violence against the women. The women were smuggled into Israel through the Egyptian border or flown in through Turkey.

Digmi told police how the network worked: “Rami Saban [who was convicted in the case] and another man rented an apartment on Yeshayahu Street in Tel Aviv. They would bring the women there straight from Egypt. They would call me after a few hours or a day or two and ask me to come to the apartment to choose the girls I wanted to buy. I came to the apartment. There were 10 to 15 girls who came from Russia via Egypt. I would look at the girls and examine them. How they looked, look at their chest, at their body. … Those who were with me at the time of the examinations translated what I said for the girls since they knew [only] Russian. They translated [his instructions] to strip and turn around while I would check them,” Digmi told police.

    Apply Israeli justice to these traffickers- an eye for an eye…and let their penalties be long and let the public and the families of these mistreated women have a crack at these psychopaths.
    I suspect Israel will do little as these monsters are running a multimillion dollar business and too many Israeli pockets are lined. May the families of these girls get to pick the tortures. The movie Eastern Promises comes to mind- very good and surprise ending…worth seeing.

    No scruples. Promised land of organized crime.

    That poor Jew, this must be some kind of anti-semantic setup, they are such kind, loving people. Hahahahahahaha, yea right. You think this will hit the front pages of main stream press, I think not.

    The Movie “Eastern Promises” shows us what goes on but tries to convince us that this is a Russian thing. When in fact the whole business is kosher though and through. Holleyweird produces a movie to sell “sex” and blame “someone else” for their crimes, kinda like every other piece of filth coming out of Holleyweird.

    It would seem in the little story of Abraham and Sarai that the only true deduction you can make is that abraham was wrong no matter how he viewed it. Pharoah was obviously disturbed and justafiably and respectfully(with all they had aqquired) sent them on the path. Rather honorable way to handle it I would say after such deceit. Score at present time isPharoah :1 Abraham:0.

    Any surprise here this freak is up to his eyeballs in slave running, drug smuggling, prostitution, extortion and other unsavory activities? And once his identity is revealed he is allowed to go ‘under the radar’ in the interest of lemme guess; ‘National Security’. Why? Oh I know! The entire body of corrupt Politicians on the ‘inside’ who are profiting as well as taking part in it will be just too much for ‘israel’s already sullied reputation as criminal network via London & Paris where morals and ethics are a joke to the participants and their minions. Fry this bastard in hot oil and bring the others to the light. Prosecute and imprison ALL! This seedy business has gone on long enough and it’s time to clean house. That is a tall order as the house is global and these crooks have a lot of blood on their hands, dirt & skin under their nails. Let’s hang the dirty rotten bastards! They have asking for it for decades. No more playing hide the parasite with ’em. The entire lot needs the gallows!

    Yes, movie Eastern Promises pushes it on the Russians but in true Hollywood style never mentions Russian mafia- Russian Jews.

    As mentioned already, there are too many ultrarich and politicians and other “statesmen” and big businessmen on the inside. We are talking billionaires. Like all things in America and other countries, those who control the money and the media control the police. Yes, there is dirt in Afghanistan but sooner or later , a tribe will band together and lay waste to another group that has committed sexual crimes on its families. In Afghanistan they don’t ask for permission to go after the scum that are trafficking and hurting their chuldren and others.

    Arab guilty of rape after consensual sex with Jew

    Palestinian Who Claimed to Be a Jew Jailed For Rape By Deception

    The judge insisted that the apparent offense of rape by deception was serious enough for jail time and not community service as the defense has argued.

    “The court is obliged to protect the public interest from sophisticated, smooth tongued criminals who can deceive innocent victims at an unbearable price,” Segal wrote.

    So, we are to assume the Egyptians abducted Sarai or kidnapped her because she was beautiful and/or she was white skinned and sold her to Pharoah? Traffcking before the Ashkenazi era? Indeed.

    Abraham not only didn’t have a Talmud, he didn’t have the toe of ra either.

    No Dallas Cowboys at the Alamo, no “Jews” in the Old Testament…

    one simply cannot run backwards into history with a modern misunderstanding…

    notwithstanding the owners of the lie factory….take the word…Gay.

    Gog & Magog stool sculpture deity cult members are really not Israel…

    good to point out their crime syndicate activities for the braindeadgoy who might stumble through the fog…to find the Ugly Truth about Talmudic Judaism

    The biggest traffikers of women in Argentina were Jews.
    Back in the turn of 19th century there was operating at full steam a criminal jewish maffia from Poland.
    They “imported” women from Poland,Russia,France,Italy ,England,etc to be worked to their death in brodels mainly in Buenos Aires,Rosario and Cordoba.
    They opened a mutual’ called firstly Varsovia later changing the name to the infamous Zwi Migdal.
    Jews living in Argentina today claim that the religious observant community of those days isolated and censored the tribal maffiosi.
    One jewish author claimed recently in a article publised by the weekly Pagina 12 that Argentineans, out of their innate antisemitism,blame the jewish community for not helping extirpate the organization and that the most hypocritical of all religions,that is,Roman Catholicism,condoned prostitution even from Agustinean and Thomas of Aquinas writings…

    So much so forth for a bunch of wretched people allowed to settle in our country out of pure Christian piety.
