Iranians rallied nationwide Friday in a show of support for Palestinians as archfoe Israel pursued its deadly campaign against the Gaza Strip.Iran holds Quds Day (Jerusalem Day) rallies in support of the Palestinians every year on the last Friday of Ramadan, but this year's demonstrations came on the 18th day of Israel's deadly campaign against rocket-firing militants in Gaza.More than 800 Palestinian civilians have been killed in the assault on Gaza and the Islamist Hamas movement that dominates it and has long been supported by Iran. Rockets and mortar rounds fired into Israel have killed three civilians -- two Israelis and a Thai farm worker -- and fighting in and around Gaza has killed 32 Israeli soldiers.
