That Congress convened to discuss ways of putting an end to the cruel treatment of the Arabs in their homeland by the rulers of the Ottoman Empire (now the Republic of Turkey) ; to punish the participants the cruelty of those rulers intensified, several of them were executed in 1915 & 1916 , the majority from Syria (today's Syria and Lebanon).

- Hikmat Beyhum
- " Beyhum " is a Lebanese family; the spelling of the name "Beyhum" in books, magazines, newspapers and search engines has been altered by its authors probably to take into account the pronunciation as best appropriate to the Country of publication. For a maximum coverage, any interested person may wish to go to the search engine(s) of his/her choice and look for the following: Beyhum bayhum beyhoum bayhom beiham beyhom beyum bayhoum bayhum baihoum beihom beihum These are 2 examples of variations in the spelling: Abdallah Beyhum is also spelled Abdullah Bayhum, and Omar Beyhum also spelled Omar Beyhoum, Omar Bayhum, Umar Bayhum . We are unable to trace in all certainty the origin of the Beyhum family prior to the mid-eighth century AD, what is certain is that we took part in the conquest of Spain; our ancestors accompanied " Emir Abd al-Rahman I " in the conquest as notables and politicians. In 1310 AD they left Spain and headed to Beirut.
