Hugo Chavez Withdraws Venezuelan Envoy To Israel

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Thursday he has recalled his country’s ambassador to Israel to show his “indignation” over the military offensive in Lebanon.

“We have ordered the withdrawal of our ambassador in Israel,” Chavez said in a televised speech, calling Israeli attacks in Lebanon “genocide.”

“It really causes indignation to see how the state of Israel continues bombing, killing … with all of the power they have, with the support of the United States.”

So what do you think of that? Venezuela, which is basically continents and oceans away from Lebanon, have severed ties with Israel over what it’s doing, yet the Arab and Muslim countries next door who have ties with Israel have done nothing.
What a big big shame!
