What is the true meaning of the word mafia?

I saw a story on Yahoo home page that says the Italian government is "The Mafia owned "homes and turning them into homes for public use. My question is what is" the mafia ", what means that there is Clearly the description of a criminal enterprise in Italy or of Italian descent.

From Wikipedia: There are several theories about the origin of the word. The adjective mafiusu Sicilian Mahyar may result from Arabic, meaning "With aggressive, bluffing," or marfud meaning "rejected". Roughly translated, means "arrogance", but can also be translated as "boldness, courage." Referring to a man, mafiusu in 19th century Sicily was ambiguous, which means a bully, arrogant but also courageous, enterprising, and proud, according to scholar Diego Gambetta. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mafia # Etymology
