<< No one likes to hear that they are a complete failure, especially not on the most popular internet search engine in the world.
  
The winner of this dreadful title was Prime Minister Ehud Olmert , who fell victim to an internet prank by right-wing activists.
  
As a result of the prank, anyone who looked up the words “kishalon charutz” (complete failure) in Google’s Hebrew site, would find themselves looking through Olmert’s resume. >>

complete failure in Hebrew is :
Kishalon (failure) Charootz (complete)
or
כשלון חרוץ

try this query –
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&rls=GGGL%2CGGGL%3A2006-10%2CGGGL%3Aen&q=%D7%9B%D7%A9%D7%9C%D7%95%D7%9F+%D7%97%D7%A8%D7%95%D7%A5&btnG=Search
