Nothing lost, a measure of quiet gained for both sides to develop their states. Keep in mind that, so long as Palestine does not have international boundaries, neither does Israel. Israel and Palestine are interdependent for legitimacy. In the end they are also interdependent economically, diplomatically and militarily (both peoples are not exactly loved in the Arab world!). So, in the end, and with so much in common, the most likely outcome will be, surprise, surprise, some form of federation! In fact, and this was proposed 30 years ago by an Israeli politician, an outcome worth striving for is some form of federation including Jordan and Syria. Now that would be an alliance in that would ensure Levantine security and prosperity!
