Barak has lived through everything and learned nothing

Defense Minister Ehud Barak ordered the IDF to flee from Lebanon, offered Yasser Arafat a far too generous deal that was rejected, did not respond forcefully to the subsequent Oslo War, and appears to have learned nothing from the experience.
In an interview Wednesday with Haaretz newspaper, Defense Minister Ehud Barak outlined his idea of a comprehensive agreement with the Palestinian Authority. He said he would like to see Jerusalem neighborhoods with Jewish residents to be retained under Israeli control but Jerusalem neighborhoods with a majority of Arab residents would be ceded. Barak added "there will be a special regime in place along with agreed upon arrangements in the Old City, the Mount of Olives and the City of David."

In response to a question about the Tuesday's terrorist attack, Barak said "Looking at the situation in a level-headed way, there is no doubt that this is an attempt to harm the start of the peace talks."
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

"Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."

Who is "me" referring to?

Ehud Barak?

Or the average Israeli voter?

Ehud Barak's proposals are far outside the Israeli mainstream and even they are not sufficient for the Palestinians. Ehud Olmert presented similar proposals and the Palestinians accepted none of them. The notion Jerusalem is going to be divided again in our lifetime will happen only when pigs can fly!
