Video: Delegate Walkout During Ahmadinejad Speech

Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad once famously bragged that, during his September 2005 speech before the United Nations General Assembly, he was surrounded by a glowing aura and mesmerized world leaders didn't and couldn't blink.

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. And they were rapt.

It seemed as if a hand was holding them there and had opened their eyes to receive the message from the Islamic republic.

His trance-inducing halo, however, was apparently missing during his speech today at the UN's so-called World Conference Against Racism in Geneva. Watch as delegates walk out during one of Ahmadinejad's typical anti-Israel rants:
