Iran's president welcomed the ceasefire between Hamas and Israel but expressed reservations about its effectiveness, a Pakistani television station, which interviewed him on Thursday, reported.

"President (Mahmoud) Ahmadinejad said the cruelty in Gaza should unite Muslims. He said he welcomes the ceasefire between Hamas and Israel, but he seems to not be very optimistic about the ceasefire," a TV anchor for the station said.

A ceasefire between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers took hold on Thursday after eight days of conflict, although deep mistrust on both sides cast doubt on how long the Egyptian-sponsored deal can last.

Iran has an alliance with Hamas. The exiled leader of Hamas, Khaled Meshaal, on Wednesday thanked Shi'ite Iran for what he described as arms and funding.

Ahmadinejad was in Islamabad to attend a summit of developing countries.

Uri D: Secondly, do you actually believe the U.S public and the western worlds public support Israel? Sorry but wrong again. There were wide spread protests against Israels attack on Gaza. Read some forums. An article today on HDN website tells the story of Ronaldo selling his golden boot and donating the money to the Palestinians. There were even real Jews protesting because they know what the Zionist Government of Israel are doing goes against what the Torah says. Israel follow Theodor Herz

Shahid Chowdhury – in case that heavy casualties were in Israel due to incapability of Iron Dome system, the IDF would swiftly enter Gaza. Luckily for Israelis and Gazans, this was not the case. Remember Cast Lead operation, in which Israeli infantries just entered Gaza as hot knife in butter. At that event, we have seen how Hamas terrorists run away by fear, hiding after their woman and children, in shame.

@Uri D: Sorry for the late reply, I was too busy still laughing at your replies! LoL. Let's see where do I begin? Oh yes, The American Government is 'not' corrupt you say? I will give you one example of many on how wrong you are. Who was the biggest contributor to the Presidential Elections? Goldman Sachs. The same Goldman Sachs the U.S bailed out of the GFC in 2008 while people lost their homes. And who controls Goldman Sachs? Jews. Who controls the U.S Federal Reserve? Ben Bernanke, a Jew!

Uri D., Your 90% figure "completely blocked" figure is a figment of your imagination caused by IDF propaganda. The "Iron Dome" anti-missile blocked 20 out of 60 of the homemade missiles, and 0% of the more sophisticated Fajr missiles that are based on Iranian technology. You need to get a clue. This latest show of savagery by Israel was intended to increase Natanyahu's chances to get elected by 100%. That's the only figure that convinces your ZioNazis whom to vote for.

Sure, Truther ... while your name suggests truth, you still have some mistakes; the US administration is not corrupt (maybe you confuse with your own government, understandable) and the number of applauses Netanyahu got in Congress in his speeches are the largest ever, demonstrating a very strong support, as the wide support in US public. Also, there was a solid-rock support for Israel in the west while confrontation with Hamas terrorists. Make your homework, I suggest.

Uri D: Listen, Iran gave Hamas an unguided Fajor5 technology which is customised in Gaza. If Hamas gets Anti-aircraft missile with guided and cruise missile, your Jewish State or Zionist Regime can not sustain because of fatalities and lethalities of the missile. Hasmas has enough anti-tank missile to destroy your Markeva tank. Think about Hazbullah of Lebanon. We know Arabs like Saudi, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain are friends of Jewish ,and enemy of Islam and Iran. May Allah save Iran and Islam.

Uri... Oh yes, I forgot. Israel have big bad bully of a bodyguard called the United States of America! Israel would have a real different attitude if it weren't for them. But you should know the American public are not and do not think the same as the corrupt U.S government. If you think Israel has the support of the American public, I can only suggest you do some more research... try some alternative media and not the government controlled, propaganda pushing, main stream media

Uri D: After reading all your comments the past few days it's obvious how you think but a little word of advice, don't take this notion of good will from Iran as weakness. This is nothing but an attempt and chance at some positive P.R. But remember, Iran is not Palestine... they have more than firecrackers!
