Sharon To Peres: "Don't worry about American pressure; We control America"
An acrimonious argument erupted during the Iraeli 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."
According to Israel radio (in hebrew) Kol Yisrael, Peres warned Sharon Wednesday 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 towards Peres saying, "every time we do somethng you tell me Americanas will do this and will do that. I want to tell you something very clear, don't worry about American pressure on Israel, we control America and the Americans know it."
The radio said Peres and other cabinet members warned Sharon against saying what he said in public because "it would cause us a public relations disaster."
