President Obama warned the Palestinian Authority of the potential consequences Friday in submittable their settlement condemnation of the settlements in the West Bank to the UN Security Council, Arabic-language daily Al-Hayat reported.

A senior member of the PLO Ahmad Majdalani, told AFP Friday that "Yesterday Obama warned that he would take action against us, and this is not a new development. Since more than a week ago we have gotten American threats." Majdalani added that the matter was discussed in Palestinian Authority meetings Friday, and that Obama "If we push this in the Security Council several circles within the US congress reconsider the American aid that the Palestinian Authority receives from the United States."

The US vetoed the UN Security Council resolution Friday which condemns settlements built over the green line as "illegal" and demands an immediate end to new building.
