Today's good news

Bolivian President Evo Morales said on Wednesday that his country is breaking diplomatic ties with Israel over its 19-day-old campaign in Gaza, and said he will ask the International Criminal Court to bring genocide charges against top Israeli officials. (Source)
Update: And more:
The UN General Assembly is to convene to debate the Israel-Hamas fighting in the Gaza Strip upon a request by the Non-Aligned Movement.

UN General Assembly Spokesman Enrique Yeves said on Wednesday that Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann of Nicaragua, the president of the 192-member assembly has called for the meeting to be held on Thursday to "send a strong message that the international community is fully in favor of an immediate ceasefire.”
That would be the same Non-Aligned Movement, led by Cuba, which a week ago "strongly condemn[ed] the escalation of the military aggression being carried out by Israel, the occupying power, in the Gaza Strip" and which "reiterate[d] that this unacceptable Israeli military aggression against the Palestinian civilian population in the Gaza Strip constitutes a grave breach of international law, including humanitarian and human rights law," and the same Non-Aligned Movement which yesterday censured Israel for ignoring the UN Security Council resolution adopted last Friday demanding an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, not to mention the same Non-Aligned movement which two days ago spearheaded the passage of a resolution by the United Nations Human Rights Council condemning Israel's aggression.

Why stop here? There's more...
