A prominent 9/11 Truther took to the Iranian state-run press on Saturday to accuse Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the "Zionist-controlled media" of "personally engineering" the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Truther Kevin Barrett made the accusation on Saturday at Iran’s state-controlled Press TV in an article headlined, "The Zionists are panicking."

Netanyahu "personally engineered" the scandal to detonate the Middle East peace process, according to Barrett, who claims to rely on first-hand information from Jerry Falwell.

"Christian Zionist leader Jerry Falwell, a friend of Netanyahu, has revealed that Netanyahu personally engineered the ‘affront to Mr. Clinton’—the Monica Lewinsky scandal—that destroyed hopes for Mideast peace," Barrett wrote.

"Falwell's claim is supported by Gordon Thomas's book ‘Gideon's Spies: The Secret History of the Mossad’ which offers evidence that the Israelis recorded Clinton's conversations with Lewinsky and (presumably) orchestrated the scandal that paralyzed the President," according to the article.

"Suddenly the Monica Lewinsky scandal blew up in the Zionist-dominated media and Clinton was impeached, though not convicted," he wrote. "His political capital spent, Clinton was unable to pressure the Zionists to make peace on terms that Palestinians, and the Arab and Muslim worlds, would accept."

"So when Netanyahu calls up Obama and threatens, his threats may not be entirely hollow," Barrett wrote.
