Mohamed ElBaradei, chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), reportedly warned Israel against attacking Iran's nuclear facilities in a magazine interview released on Saturday. It would be crazy for Israel to bomb Iran, Reuters cited ElBaradei as telling the German Der Spiegel. "It would be completely insane to attack Iran," ElBaradei reportedly said. "That would turn the region into one big fireball, and the Iranians would immediately start building the bomb -- and they could count on the support of the entire Islamic world."
