<< 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. >>

Taken from Ynet –

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

try this query –
google.com/search?hl=en&lr ...

(its the second result. the first result is one of the websites that informed this issue..)
