This potential deal would serve to benefit absolutely everyone except Lieberman, Yair Lapid, and Shas. Israel would benefit. Palestinians would benefit. Bibi, Livni, Barak would benefit. Israel would benefit. Bibi could even save some face by not having to say the "1967" lines. He could just say negotiations could begin where they left off with Livni at the helm. And he could protect himself by conditioning any potential deal to a popular referendum. Really an interesting idea.
