>Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and former prime minister Ehud Barak intensified their rivalry on Sunday with below the belt attacks on each other, including Netanyahu accusing Barak of connections to alleged pedophile and sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.

>Netanyahu and Barak fought over Twitter, where Netanyahu posted an article about Epstein, who was arrested in New York on sex trafficking charges. Netanyahu complained that the Israeli media was not criticizing Barak over his connections to Epstein.

>Barak responded by turning the tables on Netanyahu.

“It pains me that people I know have gotten in trouble with the law,” Barak wrote on Twitter. “First came Netanyahu and now Epstein. I hope for both of them that the truth will come to light.”
