Various news outlets are reporting on a new Israeli TV ad campaign for a supermarket which mimics the CCTV surveillance footage of the assassins that killed Hamas commander Mahmoud Al Mabhouh. Wearing tennis clothes, hats and disguises, the ad follows the protagonists via grainy CCTV throughout the shop as the assassins were followed (subsequently…) by Dubai police before promising “killer prices” at the end. Surprisingly, in a region known for its sense of humor, many people are not amused.
