Kevin Barrett claims:
I remember it like it happened yesterday.
It was early October, 2001. I was driving through the Shorewood neighborhood of Madison, Wisconsin, listening to BBC News on WORT listener-sponsored community radio.
The BBC announcer reported on an Israeli cabinet meeting: Shimon Peres had been pressuring Ariel Sharon to respect American calls for a ceasefire, lest the Americans turn against Israel.
According to the BBC, a furious Sharon turned toward Peres, saying:
“Every time we do something you tell me Americans 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 quote appears in this video with 10000+ views. It can also be found on several books scaned by google 1, 2, 3. Is this quote by Sharon?
