Israeli public TV reportedly pulled a trailer that parodied notorious killers only minutes after posting it to its website.

Channel 1's promo for satirical show The Jews Are Coming features three stereotypical rifle-toting settlers identified as Baruch Goldstein, who killed 29 Palestinian worshippers in Hebron; Yigal Amir, the assassin of former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin; and Yona Avrushmi, who threw a hand grenade at a left-wing rally in 1983. The US-based Jewish website Forward describes each cheerily recounting his crimes before chorusing "I'm a right-wing murderer" to the tune of a popular children's song. A viewer uploaded it to YouTube, where it went viral.
