Partial translation (courtesy Online NewsHour): "On the last day when I was speaking before the assembly, one of our group told me that when I started to say 'In the name of God the almighty and merciful,' he saw a light around me, and I was placed inside this aura. I felt it myself. I felt the atmosphere suddenly change, and for those 27 or 28 minutes, the leaders of the world did not blink. When I say they didn't bat an eyelid, I'm not exaggerating because I was looking at them. They were astonished as if a hand held them there and made them sit. It had opened their eyes and ears for the message of the Islamic Republic." Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad describing his 2005 speech at the UN General Assembly.
