Uri Avnery in   ‘The Luck of the Gambler’.......


"It reminds me of the legend of the Pied Piper.


In Hamelin, a small town in Germany, there was a plague of rats. In despair, the burghers summoned a renowned rat-catcher and promised him a generous reward.


The rat-catcher took his flute and started to play. The melody was so sweet that all the rats came out of their holes and followed him. The Pied Piper led them into the river, where all the rats perished.


Having got rid of the rats, the burghers refused to pay the agreed price.


So the Pied Piper took up his flute again and started to play. The melody was so sweet that all the children of the town left their homes and followed him. He led them into the river, where all of them drowned.


Bibi Netanyahu, the Pied Piper. Frightening."
