Burying Sharon – and “We Jews control America”

May this man roast on the eternal fires

May this man roast on the eternal fires

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.”

I was stunned. Such colossal arrogance!

After a moment’s thought, it wasn’t so much the arrogance that was so stunning – it was that the BBC had reported Sharon’s indiscretion. Now it was on the record – undeniable – an ineradicable part of the national dialogue and the historical record. Surely the American mainstream media would plaster this story all over its front pages! This could start a long-overdue national dialogue about the power of the Israel lobby. It could even be a turning point – the end of America’s slavish subservience to Israel.

At the very least, it would start a national debate: Was Sharon right? Or was he exaggerating?

During the next several days I scanned the media in vain for any reference to Sharon’s boast. There were none. The story had been buried. It was as if it had never happened.

Sharon’s “we Jews control America” quote was outrageous, scandalous, attention-getting. Translated into screaming front-page headlines, it could have sold newspapers. Surely the commercial media, always in it for a buck, would milk the outrage factor for every penny it could squeeze out of it.  Right? Wrong.

For some strange reason, the BBC report vanished into the aether.

In 2005, when Sharon resigned as Prime Minister, I called in to a WORT talk show hosted by an Israeli woman who was showering Sharon with respect – a strange way for an avowedly leftist, peacenik station to treat one of history’s worst war criminals.  I asked her why the media had buried Sharon’s “we Jews control America” rant. She flew into a rage, called me an anti-Semite, and hung up on me.

So why DID the US media bury Sharon’s quote? Former New York Times journalist Phillip Weiss has offered the most plausible explanation. He says the majority of decision-makers in American mainstream journalism are Jewish, and that they feel like they are Israel’s last line of defense.

It seems Sharon won his argument with Peres. Jewish Zionists control America so completely that when the Israeli Prime Minister screams it from the rooftops, Americans are not allowed to hear it.

As Gilad Atzmon says: “Jewish power is the ability to get us to stop talking about Jewish power.”

    I heard this said in a recent show:
    ” …..If you go back a few years to Israel, the Israeli prime minister ordered an attack without anyone else’s knowledge on Iran. He had a Chief of Staff, the Air Force general and the Infantry general all refused a direct order from a legally elected prime minister to attack Iran. All three refused because they said it would cause a world war….”
    Can anyone confirm this and was that Sharon?

  2. Yehuda_Abraham  January 15, 2014 at 11:12 am

    Isn’t that interesting. If one takes the time to read Omni-Putz’ source, you will find the following.

    “She now claimed that her sources were two anonymous Israelis.” and that she stands behind this quote.

    How can you tell when a Zionist is lying???????????

  3. Yehuda_Abraham  January 15, 2014 at 11:05 am

    Also interesting that you accuse Hamas of fabricating a quote from Sharon, and use as your source……….The Zionists who run CAMERA, a Jewish website who actually call Peter Jennings an “anti-semite”.

    Hilarious.

  4. Yehuda_Abraham  January 15, 2014 at 11:00 am

    Speaking of things that never happened, Press TV has a great article about things that never happened, but the Zionists claim did.

    First 11, now 13. Sharon’s death was a Masonic 11, because of his death on the 11th. And they followed it up with his funeral today on the 13th, so it’s a Masonic 13 now too. Wow, that’s pretty in-your-face. He’s been on ice for 8 years, so there was plenty of time to plan this.

  6. ProtectUSA1st  January 12, 2014 at 9:48 pm

    Dr. Barrett, “I remember it like it happened yesterday.”

    ——I remember it like it yesterday too & my mouth dropped when I heard it. But mine was, on TimesOnline/UK when interviewing Sharon, just before the Iraq War in November 2002.

    —–Among other things, Sharon said I told Bush to take care of Iraq first then finish it with Iran. Don’t be surprised, you should know that “We Control America, America Does Not Control Us.”

    Joel Stein, LA Times – Who Own the USA Media?
    http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-stein19-2008dec19,0,4676183.column

    —–USA Congress where most of the Zionist Termites & Israel Firsters do their evil deeds, we have to have #1 Term Limit and #2 Get rid of all the Zionist Termites & Israel Firsters.

    —– Create one website where all Americans go to, hopefully to get informed and select the right candidate, and who will also take an oat to protect USA, before he/she elected.

    On April 8, 2013, Margaret Thatcher, former British PM, died. For days following, there were spontaneous celebrations on the streets of Britain. “Dong-dong, The witch is dead!” was the number one song on UK radio stations.

    On January 11, 2013, Ariel Sharon, former Israeli PM, a far more despicable character than Margaret Thatcher, died.

    So where are the spontaneous celebrations on the streets of the world?

  8. ayelyahbenjamin  January 12, 2014 at 11:20 am

    .. arrogance AND complete confidence Sharon spoke these words in October 2001…having just pulled off 9/11 with all investigations into israeli involvement torpedoed by the “higher ups” … “The Dancing Israelis – a Celebration of Murder”…. this shoe fits on his dead cold foot

  9. stephanaugust  January 12, 2014 at 10:55 am

    Here is an even better Sharon quote from 1983:

    “Even today, I am willing to volunteer to do the dirty work for Israel, to kill as many Arabs as necessary, to deport them, to expel and burn them, to have everyone hate us, to pull the rug from underneath the feet of the Diaspora Jews, so that they will be forced to run to us crying. Even if it means blowing up one or two synagogues here and there, I don’t care. And I don’t mind if after the job is done you put me in front of a Nuremberg trial and then jail me for life. Hang me if you want, as a war criminal. Then you can spruce up your Jewish conscience and enter the respectable club of civilized nations, nations that are large and healthy. What you lot don’t understand is that the dirty work of Zionism is not finished yet, far from it.”

  10. pjs  January 11, 2014 at 8:37 pm

    ‘Christian Zionists’ will be lapping up the announcement of Sharon’s demise. They believe in a (false) prophecy from Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri that the Jewish messiah will rise in Israel shortly after Sharon dies and his name will be ‘Jesus’. If this is made to pass, it might succeed in deceiving many Christians, Muslims and Jews into accepting the JWO.

    THEY MAY CONTROL THE GOVERNMENT, BUT THEY DO NOT CONTROL THE PEOPLE. OUR GOVERNMENT IS SPINELESS. WE ARE NOT. TREAD LIGHTLY JEW BOYS, TREAD VERY LIGHTLY.

      Chandler… salam.. please keep in mind, we the citizens and voters are the ones who vote these creeps into office… all the hundreds of millions will not elect a mayor let alone a senator or a congressman if the voters do not go to the polls and cast their votes… yes, we ,not them are the stupid fools, we keep electing these Israeli- First over and over and over…

  12. JS  January 11, 2014 at 2:23 pm

    Dr. Barrett, you can add another “11” to your list. Ariel Sharon died 1/11/2014.

    But my favorite 11 still has to be Bush Sr’s first famous NWO speech, made Sept. 11 of 1990, exactly 11 years to the day before 9/11 attacks of 2001. Actually, that’s THREE 11’s in one. Thanks to Capt. Eric May for pointing this out years ago.

      A bit off topic (***http://www.veteranstoday.com/2014/01/01/11-examples/), but If he instead had died on the second, then you would have had two elevens;
      2+1+1+2+1+4=11.

      I still don’t really understand all the eleven mumbo-jumbo. Doesn’t seem to be very useful if it can only used in hindsight.

    • stephanaugust  January 12, 2014 at 10:54 am

      The number 11 represents the two pillars which can be seen in masonic circles. Masons may suffer from some kind of obsessive compulsive disorder.

    • Dodd  January 12, 2014 at 12:17 pm

      I thought they were the “Pillars of Hercules”, like in the dollar symbol –

    I did a serch for results from 1.1.2003 to 1.1.2004. Google will show three search results. Here is one with the exact day:

    “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.” – Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001, to Shimon Peres, as reported on Kol Yisrael radio.

  16. Bente  January 11, 2014 at 1:15 pm

    At that time I was in Asia and we did not hear much of all this over there – too busy too to read the “news” US/EU/ME seemed very far away. Now that I am back in Denmark and have time to read the alternative media I am learning. Well !!!! Sharon probably was right, the Jewish people do control the USA… something that must have been rather shocking at the time he said it – and shocking there was no outcry at the time, but shocking why? Seen from here I think it is more shocking THAT the Jewish people do control America, and are allowed to do so. Sharon got away with murder literally … he did… but who let him get away with it, who could have stopped him? No amount of ”over-there-ness” will help us …”it is all Israel’s fault” no it isn’t, it is your fault and my fault for letting Israel get away with what they have done and are doing every day. So let us stop kidding ourselves and start to DO … lets fight for and not stop until there are serious sanctions issued on Israel. Sanctions Issued by UNSC… and enforced. And let us be ready to land troops in Israel with the approval of UNSC of course, troops to make sure the Israelis don’t kill all the Palestinians who are still left, US troops and NATO troops. If we do that there will be a change. And we can all celebrate that the sanity and goodness won over insanity and evil. And maybe USA then can be free again and EU too. And the Jews who don’t agree with Zionism can also be free .

    And that media barrier will never become broken, and won’t even weaken, unless Dr. Preston James’ “third force,” cuts them out and throws them on the alter as a sacrifice for a much more grand piece of “the great work.”

  20. sweetliberty  January 11, 2014 at 11:13 am

    Thank you for this, Dr. Barrett.

    We certainly need the entire picture and the Zionist control that has taken over countries around the world is just short of breathtaking. Jews need to wake up to the mounting worldwide contempt and visceral hate that is accumulating towards them.

    Shining sunlight into the dark recesses of the Jesuit hand lurking behind the scenes in no way excuses contemptible behavior on the part of Zionists or Jews.

    (There isn’t an unwritten law somewhere that to expose Jesuits means one is in favor of the deplorable behavior of Zionists and many Jews is there?)

    • pjs  January 11, 2014 at 8:20 pm

      The Jesuit order has its roots in Talmudic Judaism. The founder of the Jesuits, Ignatius of Loyola was a ‘converso’ or ‘marrano’ (Spanish crypto-Jew).

      You are right, there is a ‘mounting worldwide contempt and visceral hate’ accumulating towards the Jews but, for some reason, this has been deliberately ignited and fueled by other Jews. It’s a very strange phenomenon that’s difficult to understand unless it’s because Talmudic scholars believe that Israel must be sacrificed in order for the Jewish messianic kingdom to arise out of its ashes (fake resurrection). Who knows?

    • wolf  January 12, 2014 at 8:34 pm

      Could the long awaited ‘holocuast’ or ritual burnt sacrifice of 6 million Jews be imminent then?
      Interestingly,the State of Israel has a population of approximately 8,012,400 inhabitants as of 31 March 2013 and 75.4 percent of them are Jewish (about 6,037,700 individuals!!)

  21. Divine Law  January 11, 2014 at 10:53 am

    A true psychopath has departed. Too bad we couldn’t have tried him in Nuremberg for crimes against humanity. So now Ariel is with Jesus Christ his saviour, maybe he will forgive this uncivilized barbarian acts of cruelty.

    with their approval ratings in the low teens at best, what more proof do we need that all these so called “elections” arent completely rigged? I disagree that they are winning any real elections.

  28. JS  January 15, 2014 at 2:31 pm

    Anyone who buys the nonsense that he will be part of a 144,000-strong elite group, is ALREADY sucked into the NWO’s plan. Ben Fulford got an email from a NWO spokesman not long ago, claiming that they are going to kill off just about everybody, but of course they will keep 144,000 elite to rule the whole earth, the 10% they will keep as slaves. Charles Manson and his Family said the same exact thing in 1969, right after they tried to set off their Helter Skelter race war with the Tate-LaBianca satanic murders. Link to chilling court testimony in the Manson trial:
    ***http://law2.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/manson/mansontestimony-w.html

    To a very great extent, Manson’s demented dream has already been fulfilled. Paul Watkins said in court testimony, on public record, that their cult of fanatics was going to grow to 144,000 strong, and they would be the elite and in control of the entire world. At the time, we just thought it was a few nut cases saying that. But this Manson psycho is part of a bigger agenda, and we ignored him AT OUR PERIL.
