The Jerusalem Post (Link) (August 21, 2010)

As Iranian and Russian engineers began loading fuel into Iran�s first nuclear power plant on Saturday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told Qatari newspaper Al-Shark that if the Islamic Republic�s nuclear facilities were attacked, the response from Teheran would be �worldwide� in its scope.

�Our possibilities would be limitless and would encompass the whole world,� said Ahmadinejad.

Ahmadinejad discussed Israel, stating that the Jewish state would like to attack Iran but understands that the Islamic Republic is a �fortress that cannot be destroyed� and that the Iranian response to such an attack would be harsh and painful.

�I don�t believe their American masters would let them attack,� Ahmadinejad added on Israel.
