Hong Kong Founded as Sassoon Drug Center.
Hong Kong and The Sassoon Opium Wars.

The 99 year British lease on Hong Kong expired in July allowing the Red
Chinese to take over. Hundreds of newspaper stories and TV reports have
covered this event but not one revealed how England first gained control
of Hong Kong! The truth lies buried in the family line of David Sassoon,
"The Rothschilds of The Far East," and their monopoly over the opium
trade. Britain won Hong Kong by launching the opium Wars to give the
Sassoons exclusive rights to drug an entire nation!

David Sassoon was born in Baghdad, Iran in 1792. His father, Saleh
Sassoon, was a wealthy banker and the treasurer to Ahmet Pasha, the
governor of Baghdad. (Thus making him the "court Jew" - a highly
influential position.) In 1829 Ahmet was overthrown due to corruption
and the Sassoon family fled to Bombay, India. This was the strategic
trade route to interior India and the gateway to the Far East. In a
brief time the British government granted Sassoon "monopoly rights" to
all manufacture of cotton goods, silk and most important of all - Opium
- then the most addictive drug in the world!

The Jewish Encyclopedia of 1905, states that Sassoon expanded his opium
trade into China and Japan. He placed his eight sons in charge of the
various major opium exchanges in China. According to the 1944 Jewish
Encyclopedia: "He employed only Jews in his business, and wherever he
sent them he built synagogues and schools for them. He imported whole
families of fellow Jews. . . and put them to work."
Sassoon's sons were busy pushing this mind-destroying drug in Canton,
China. Between 1830 - 1831 they trafficked 18,956 chests of opium
earning millions of dollars. Part of the profits went to Queen Victoria
and the British government. In the year 1836 the trade increased to over
30,000 chests and drug addiction in coastal cities became endemic. In
1839, the Manchu Emperor ordered that it be stopped. He named the
Commissioner of Canton, Lin Tse-hsu, to lead a campaign against opium.
Lin seized 2,000 chests of Sassoon opium and threw it into the river. An
outraged David Sassoon demanded that Great Britain retaliate. Thus, the
Opium Wars began with the British Army fighting as
mercenaries of the Sassoons. They attacked cities and blockaded ports.
The Chinese Army, decimated by 10 years of rampant opium addiction,
proved no match for the British Army. The war ended in 1839 with the
signing of "The Treaty of Nanking." This included provisions especially
designed to guarantee the Sassoons the right to enslave an entire
population with opium. The "peace treaty" included these provisions: "1)
Full legalization of the opium trade in China, 2) compensation from the
opium stockpiles confiscated by Lin of 2 million pounds, 3) territorial
sovereignty for the British Crown over several designated offshore

Sassoon's Use British Army to Drug An Entire Nation

British Prime Minister Palmerston wrote Crown Commissiner Captain
Charles Elliot that the treaty didn't go far enough. He said it should
have been rejected out of hand because: "After all, our naval power is
so strong that we can tell the Emperor what we mean to hold rather than
what he would cede. We must demand the admission of opium into interior
China as an article of lawful commerce and increase the indemnity
payments and British access to several additional Chinese ports." Thus,
China not only had to pay Sassoon the cost of his dumped opium but
reimburse England an unheard sum of 21 million pounds for the cost of
the war! This gave the Sassoon's monopoly rights to distribute opium in
port cities. However, even this was not good enough and Sassoon demanded
the right to sell opium throughout the nation. The Manchus resisted and
the British Army again attacked in the "Second Opium War fought 1858 -
1860. Palmerston declared that all of interior China must be open for
uninterrupted opium traffic. The British suffered a defeat at the Taku
Forts in June 1859 when sailors, ordered to seize the forts, were run
aground in the mud-choked harbor. Several hundred were killed or
captured. An enraged
Palmerston said: "We shall teach such a lesson to these perfidious
hordes that the name of Europe will hereeafter be a passport of fear.
"In October, the British besieged Peking. When the city fell, British
commander Lord Elgin, ordered the temples and other sacred shrines in
the city sacked and burned to the ground as a show of Britain's absolute
comtempt for the Chinese. In the new "Peace Treaty" of Oct.25, 1860, the
British were assigned rights to vastly expanded opium trade covering
seven-eights of China, which brought in over 20 million pounds in 1864
alone. In that year, the Sassoons imported 58,681 chests of opium and by
1880 it had skyrocketed to 105,508 chests making the Sassoons the
richest Jews in the world. England was given the Hong Kong peninsula as
a colony and large sections of Amoy, Canton, Foochow, Ningpo and
Shanghai. The Sassoons were now licensing opium dens in each British
occupied area with large fees being collected by their Jewish agents.
Sassoon would not allow any other race to engage in "the Jews'

However, the British government would not allow any opium to be imported
into Europe!
Sassoon "Monopoly Rights" Wrecked Lancashire - England's Textile
Industry - Made Roosevelt Wealthy Sir Albert Sassoon, the eldest of
David Sassoon's sons took over the family "business" empire. He
constructed huge extile mills in Bombay to pay slave labor wages. This
expansion continued after World War One and ended up putting mills in
Lancashire, England out of business with thousands losing their jobs.
This did not stop Queen Victoria from having Albert knighted in 1872.
Solomon Sassoon moved to Hong Kong and ran the family business there
until his death in 1894. Later, the entire family moved to England
because with modern communications they could operate their financial
empire from their luxurious estates in London. They socialized with
royalty and Edward Albert. Sassoon married Aline Caroline de Rothschild
in 1887 which linked their fortune with that of the Rothschilds. The
Queen also had Edward knighted. All 14 of the grandsons of David Sassoon
were made officers during World War One and thus most were able to avoid
Franklin D. Roosevelt's fortune was inherited from his maternal
grandfather Warren Delano. In 1830 he was a senior partner of Russell &
Company. It was their merchant fleet which carried Sassoon's opium to
China and returned with tea. Warren Delano moved to Newburgh, N.Y. In
1851 his daughter Sara Married a well-born neighbor, James Roosevelt -
the father of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He always knew the origin of
the family fortune but refused to discuss it.
The Sassoon opium trade brought death and destruction to millions and
still plagues Asia to this day. Their company was totally operated by
Jews ONLY! The corrupt British monarchy honored them with privilege and
knighthood - to the disgrace of the Crown! To this day the Sassoons are
in the history books as "great developers" of India but the source of
their vast wealth is never mentioned!
