Can I Remind You of Ehud Olmert's Thinking?

On disengagement:

We will lead it because it's good for us. And we will lead it because it may do good to the Palestinians. And we believe that if it will be good for us and will be good for the Palestinians, then it will be good. It will bring more security, greater safety, much more prosperity, and a lot of joy for all the people that live in the Middle East. … Everything depends on the success of this disengagement.

On Israel's stamina and fortitude:

And we all desperately need it. We are tired of fighting, we are tired of being courageous, we are tired of winning, we are tired of defeating our enemies, we want that we will be able to live in an entirely different environment of relations with our enemies. We want them to be our friends, our partners, our good neighbors.

It seems that the Israel Policy Forum website was not operating when I searched for this quotation which I put up previously on my blog. Did they dare remove it?

In any case, it appears here and here, in my own op-ed based on the New York Times' letter written by Seymour Reich.
