Gil Mildar
As the song says, a Latin American with no money in his pocket.

Once upon a time…

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful, independent, and self-assured princess named Israel in a land not so far away. One day, a glossy green frog leaped into her lap while strolling by a serene lake. In a surprisingly gruff voice, the frog began to speak:

— Beautiful princess, I was once a powerful prince. A wicked curse turned me into this hideous frog, but your kiss can break the spell. Together, we can rule the kingdom. I’ll ensure security, strengthen our settlements, bring economic prosperity, defend our borders, and uphold the traditions and values of our land.

Deep in thought, Israel looked at the frog with a mysterious smile.

That evening, while savoring frog legs sautéed in a creamy onion sauce, accompanied by a fine white wine, the princess smiled to herself and thought:

— Yeah, right. Not a chance!

The moral of the story: hungry people devour their leaders.
