As seen on Ha'aretz and Ynet: genocide!

I was reading Ynet a few days ago when I noticed a banner pop up thingy across the top of the page I was reading.  It was a paid advert for a site called Samson Blinded and it contained all sorts of wacky notions about how to conquer Palestine once and for all.  Well I didn't think too much about it until someone sent me the link to this article on Electronic Intifada about how Ha'aretz accepted paid advertising for a book called Samson Blinded:
Haaretz.com, the website of the Israeli newspaper often cited as an example of Israel's liberal, critical media carries paid advertisements from a website openly advocating the total destruction of the Palestinian people, the murder of large numbers of Muslim civilians, the assassination of the family members of Arab rulers, and the use of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons against dozens of countries.The website, Samson Blinded, claims that Google banned its advertisements from its adwords program. If that is true, it would be consistent with Google's policy that prohibits advertising promoting violence or advocating against any group based on race, ethnic or national origin or religion.
And the zionist press doesn't have a policy against
advertising promoting violence or advocating against any group based on race, ethnic or national origin or religion.
Thank goodness, I thought rules had been breached for a moment there.
