I think this is an unprecedented policy shift for Israel. And by that, I mean that I don't think that Israel-or an Israeli high ranking minister has ever articulated the idea that Israel would be better off without the United States as its "friend".
Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but this seems to me a seismic shift in policy and a realization that under President Obama-America can simply no longer be counted as an ally.
