EXCLUSIVE: We Are Doing What We Can To Release Indians In ISIS Captivity, Says Palestine's Ambassador To India

In the wake of the brutal Paris attacks, Palestine's influence with ISIS could be pivotal, not least in mediating the release of Indian captives held by the terrorist organisation in Iraq. In a no-holds-barred interview, Palestine's Ambassador to India, HE Adnan Abualhaija, hits out at the global media for ignoring crimes against Palestinians by an Israeli government controlled by ultra-right wing groups, Israel's avowed reluctance for a two-state solution, the "Judaizing" of Jerusalem and India's growing ties with Israel seen against Palestine's influence in the Arab world.
