An Iranian envoy said Monday his government will not submit to extensive nuclear inspections while Israel stays outside the global treaty to curb the spread of atomic weapons.

"The existing double standard shall not be tolerated anymore by non-nuclear-weapon states," Ambassador Ali Asghar Soltanieh told a meeting of the 190 countries that have signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty.

I guess that's fair. I mean, we all know Israel is a responsible power with no history of aggression or invading its neighbors or anything...

As much as I disapprove of the current regime in Iran and it's mistreatment of Iranians, I can't see how anyone could argue with them on this one.

I guess US and Israel are the only countries that can go against the UN without any consequences.



why not

Israeli Human rights abuses matches Iran. Why not both be under the fire? Equality.
