    Barak and his campaign team went to a falafel stand in Tel Aviv, on the corner of King George and Shlomo HaMelech Street. on Monday. The campaign team filmed Barak paying with him own credit card and mocking Netanyahu for reports that he does not have a credit card of his own.

    After the ad was posted on Barak’s Twitter account, his followers focused a screen shot on the credit card and displayed the card number of the multimillionaire politician for the world to see.

    A spokesman for Barak said he canceled the Visa card but was not particularly troubled by the incident.

    “The time has come for Israel to have a prime minister with a credit card,” Barak’s Israel Democratic Party said in an official statement.

    Despite reports that he does not have a credit card, Netanyahu publicly paid for his coffee at Jerusalem’s Duvshanit coffee shop while on Facebook Live last week.

    Netanyahu has repeatedly been accused of relying on donations from millionaire friends whenever he has a large expense. He has asked for them to be allowed to cover his legal costs in his ongoing corruption cases.

    Barak posted on Twitter a picture of Netanyahu together with Millionaire Arnon Milchan under the headline “Netanyahu’s credit card.”

    What a fool this man is. Who would possibly want him as Israel’s Prime Minister? So Bibi doesn’t have a credit card but does he have a business partner who is a convicted pedophile?

    To: #1 and #2 - While the two of you were in your diapers, Ehud Barak served in the IDF, and became the most heavily decorated soldier in the 71 year history of the IDF! Therefore, guard your stupid tongues!!
