Asked to respond to President Obama's statement about the need for the Muslim community to take more responsibility, Mr. Omar replied, "I'm worried about putting all that responsibility on the Muslim community. Absolutely everyone must play a role if we are to combat violent extremism. It can't just be the Muslims, we need everyone."
"The conversations I've had reminded me of the conversations I had in Tunisia. People are saying that their living conditions are unbearable, and there is a sense that there is no movement toward reform. That is where the anger is coming from," Ms. Omar said from Amman in a Skype interview with The Washington Times.
