Bombshell: Saudi Arabia threatens to cut ties with US over Palestine UN Veto

I found this an astonishing piece of information and I wonder if this is reported or discussed in mainstream media outlets at all. This may just be an opinion article, but I think, coming from a member of the Saudi Royal Family, it also contains a significant warning to the US: if the US will use its veto agianst the Palestinians, it might lose its single most important ally in the Arab world, which also happens to be a major oil supplier to the US.

Veto a State, Lose an Ally

I'm sure this whole Palestine issue is giving the Obama administration a major headache already.
