Vice-chairman of Qatari-funded Union for Sunni clerics called "International Union for Muslim scholars" (IUMS) [metaphrase], Sheikh Abdullah bin Bayyah had a visit to the White House in June 13, to urge the US administration to take 'urgent action' to help Syrian rebels.
Bin Bayyah lobbied the White House to "take urgent action" to help Syrian rebels. "We demand Washington take a greater role in [Syria]," Bin Bayyah told Al-Jazeera. Obama later announced plans to arm Syrian rebels.
