Ariel Sharon: "We Control America"
Jeruslam, Occupied Palestine -- Sharon to Peres: don't worry about American pressure -- "We Control America"
Occupied Jerusalem: 3 October, 2001 (IAP News)

An acrimonious argument erupted during the Israeli cabinet weekly session last week between Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and his foreign Minister Shimon Peres during which Sharon reportedly yelled at Peres, saying "don't worry about American pressure, we control America."
Comment: Admittedly, this is not a stellar source, but can you imagine that the jews would report something like this. In my opinion this is probably a true and accurate account.

According to the Israeli Hebrew radio, Col Yisrael Wednesday, Peres warned Sharon that refusing to heed incessant American requests for a cease-fire with the Palestinians would endanger Israeli interests and turn the US against us.

At this point, a furious Sharon reportedly turned toward Peres, saying "every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that…I want to tell you something very clear, don't worry about American pressure on Israel, we, the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it."

The radio said Peres and other cabinet ministers warned Sharon against saying what he said in public because "it would cause us a public relations disaster."
Freelance writer Jim Moore submitted an article to the Tallahassee Democrat, daily newspaper of Tallahassee, Florida, and owned by the Knight-Ridder Corporation. The article was one of several he had written that were critical of Israel, but this one was a little different. It included a quote from Ariel Sharon, broadcast on Col Yisrael radio, that "Jewish people rule America." Managing Editor Mizell Stewart feared the implications of Moore's piece and refused to print. Moore received notice that he was barred from ever again writing for the paper the next day.
Though Israeli officials have publicly admitted that Sharon "had bouts of
anger during a recent Knesset meeting and that he said 'things that shouldn't be said,'" this didn't matter to Knight-Ridder. Though it is not a Jewish owned or managed company, it still plays ball.
