Ad Feedback

Obama administration officials recently met with a controversial Muslim cleric at the White House.

Abdallah bin Bayyah is vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, a group founded by Egyptian cleric Yusuf Qaradawi.

Qaradawi is considered the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and he's called for killing Jews and Americans.

He's also been banned from entering the United States.

The IUMS is an outspoken supporter of Hamas and in the past has called for the destruction of Israel and resistance to American troops in Iraq.

According to the investigative project on terrorism, Bayyah met with National Security Officials at the White House on June 13. He reportedly urged the administration to give more support to the rebels in Syria.

The White House confirmed the report and said it reached out to bin Bayyah because he spoke out against al Qaeda.
