Syria is allowing inspections of the site which Israeli Forces destroyed because of suspicions that it was a secret nuclear reactor. Israel did so before the International Atomic Energy Agency could inspect the site. Now, Syria and Israel have been engaged in indirect peace talks, but Syria argues that Israel should submit to the same type of inspections. While Israel may not be a threat to the West, it is seen as hostile to much of the Middle East because its stockpile is of unknown size. As we have seen in the past, Israel does not show the greatest of restraint in flexing its military muscles (just ask Lebanon).
Is it fair to demand inspection privileges of countries like Syria and Iran, but not of Israel?
