The Sassoon Opium Wars


The Jewish Opium Trade and Britain

The Truth at Last:
Hong Kong’s opium dens

———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——
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 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 1842 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 islands. 

Sassoon’s Use British Army to Drug An Entire Nation

   British Prime Minister Palmerston wrote Crown Commissioner 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’ business.”   

   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 textile 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 combat.   

   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!

    There was a book written, and a movie created entitled, “The Evil That Men Do”, and when you read about what has been done throughout history and the fact that the truth is never broadcast; but luckily it is known and brilliant writers provide the true history of the “Evil that Men Do!”
    When I realize how many individuals have died throughout history because of the greed and avarice of other men (and women) I want to retch!

    Compare to Stalin and Mao Tse Tung who killed millions of their own people; the British Empire and Sassoon is nothing.

      Yeah yeah. We kill so as to liberate people, we kill so as to give them religion and civilisation, we kill so as to give them freedom, democracy…and so on and so forth. Our killings are always good, theirs are bad. We always practice restraint in our killings, unlike those savages living in those strange and faraway lands including Ireland [well Ireland is “far” enough]. The British empire have been killing others around the world for hundreds of years it must have run into hundreds of millions, at the very least.

      We control the news and write history to put ourselves in the right and noble light against those monsters.

      Some questions are slowly coming out and one may like to read this article by Joseph Ball; Did Mao really kill millions at:

    How a Judge can send a simple ned to prison for selling some hash and speed while knowing that the crown he represents has enslaved nations with opium,is simply beyond me.
    Its an evil system run by evil people.

    By the way id send the ned to jail,but id throw away the key of those of the crown and others who have perpetrated sutch evil on mankind.

    kssk you couldn’t be more wrong… and the attempt to absolve guilt by comparing atrocities is pathetic….

    Nothing is worse than the slow poisoning of an entire large nation. Tens of millions died from opium use and the suffering to individuals and families ripped apart, and eventually to the nation was on an unprecedented scale. The length of time matters greatly too as this lasted for nearly a century. Mao and Stalin and others were relatively brief giving way to hope and recovery. Even the Jewish experience during the Holocaust did not remove hope and was short-lived compared to the opium trade in china.

    Interesting read. You have shared some decent information but you have not mentioned that Opium smuggling was no an exclusive monopoly of Sassoons or Jews. Though they may have done well than others but there were number of Parsis, Muslims and also some Gujarati Businessmen who indulged in it and also Opium War was not solely due to Sassoons. It had to do with British Imperialism as well

    Did the Gujurati business men have control of the British Army when the Imperial Summer Palace was destroyed ( an act that is considered one of the most heinous of national vandalisms ) ? No?
