Middle East tensions rise after Obama's Syrian move

From Al Arabiya:
King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia cut his holiday in Morocco short and returned to Jeddah on Friday “due to the repercussions of the events that are currently taking place in the region,” the state news agency SPA reported. 
These events are understood to include the American decision to provide military support for the Syrian opposition.
Saudi Arabia has long advocated arming Syrian rebels. Is Obama's decision to do so another bow to the Saudi king?
