MEMRI: Iranian TV Claims U.S. Jewish Lobby Behind Watergate Affair

The following clip is a news story from the Iranian News Channel (IRINN)
stating that Jewish lobby was behind the Watergate affair.

*Clip 689: Iranian TV: Jewish Lobby Set Watergate Trap for Nixon

Reporter: Today, it has become clear that Nixon's dispute with Israel and
the Zionist lobby was among the main causes for his downfall. In fact, the
reporters who exposed the Watergate affair and blew it out of proportion
were Zionists, recruited to the ranks of the Zionist lobby. By using the
media as its tool, Zionism tried to get one of its main opponents out of the
way.

Nixon wrote in his memoirs: "One of the main problems I had to face was
narrow mindedness and pro-Israel views."

Nixon wrote: "In the 25 years since the end of World War II, these views
spread and grew stronger to the point that many people consider refraining
from supporting Israel to be antisemitism. I tried to make them understand
that this is not true, but did not succeed."

Indeed, Nixon did not succeed. Along with Kennedy, he is considered a victim
of a major political coup carried out by the Zionist lobby.
