  • Gulshan Dietl replies: The US Administration is under the pro-Israeli influence. It is pervasive in terms of its political, financial and media power. The Arab world is in no position to pressurise the US on the Israel-Palestine issue.

    A vast majority of Palestinians are Sunni. According to estimates, only about one per cent of them are Shia.
