Chavez: It's "genocide"

From Ha'aretz:
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."
The U.S. says it's campaigning against a U.N. Security Council seat for Venezuela on the grounds that Venezuela would be "disruptive." I sure hope so.
