Saudi and UAE leaders in particular have expressed concern that Washington can no longer be counted on, citing US diplomatic overtures to Iran and a cautious approach to the Syrian conflict.

I think maybe the Saudis did a quick compare contrast between Israel and ISIS and realized they have a better future with Israel.
