Olmert - A Defeatist?

Ehud Olmert has been a remarkable source for outrageous quotations, including one about "stupid settlers" in the Jerusalem Post on June 23 this year when he said

"I am sick and tired of hearing from stupid settlers that Gaza and Jerusalem are the same. Gaza and Jerusalem are not the same."

He later amended that statement, claiming he was misunderstood, taken out of context, et al.

Well, in the New York Times letters to the editor section yesterday, Seymour Reich,
President of the Israel Policy Forum, published a missive which contained this from the mouth of Olmert:

We are tired of fighting, we are tired of being courageous, we are tired of winning, we are tired of defeating our enemies.

Has Olmert joined the ranks of the defeatists?

This is not the verbiage of a Zionist leader.
