Would Israel Distance Itself From USA?

Obama and NetanyahuWhile President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu met (CBS News nailed the nuance), Bret Stephens (Wall St. Journal via Google News) argues that Israel needs to strategically distance itself from Uncle Sam and not rely on American diplomacy or promises of military action to deal with Iran:

That isn’t to say that Israel doesn’t benefit from good relations with the U.S. But the U.S., like Britain after World War II, is in retreat from the world, and Israelis need to adapt to a global reality in which the Americans are willing to do less, and consequently count for less. What Mr. Netanyahu has been doing instead is granting Mr. Obama a degree of leverage and a presumption of authority over the Jewish state to which he is not entitled and has done little to deserve. That needs to stop.
