You should figure out who/what did, then.  Those rules don't look like 
they were created by Red Hat's tools (where you'd see RH-Firewall...), 
and won't be present by default.  Something created rules and the rules 
don't allow access to TCP or UDP 53 (you need both).

For now, just flush the rules: iptables -F INPUT
