“This sounds bad and I lot of people to get a lot of pain for what I am to say, but this crazy horrible thing it was revenge. It was not terrorism, he said.

“He said the Muslim religion is a beautiful, beautiful religion, where everything is about love.”
Miguel added that he met the first time with Omar in lounge called the“parliament”, adding that on their second encounter they went to a hotel called the Ambassador, in west Orlando.
