I personally know some of the Sassoon family members.<quoted text>
Sasson is a French - Jewish name from North Africa - not Iraq.
I have met a few from that clan.
Most of them live in London and elsewhere these days.
The Sassoons have contributed in a very big way to the development of Mumbai.
They're billionaires and since 1945 or so became close to the London-based Rothschilds.
The Sassoons claim they are ME Jews and that they've lived in Iraq for centuries before emigrating to India.
Whatever, they're Jews of ME ancestry.
