That is a great way of putting it.
Too many people act as if in the collision between the terrorists and their victims, it's the dead who should have known better than to go X or be at Y. Taylor Force's dad neatly reverses the question.
But first a little bit about Taylor Force.
Taylor Force had been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, he had served at Fort Hood in the year of the infamous Islamic terrorist attack on the base, but a Jihadist finally caught up to the veteran, whose father and grandfather had also served their country, in civilian life during a visit to Israel.
Palestinian Authority television called the terrorist who murdered an American, a Shaheed, a martyr for Islam.
Taylor Force's death helped inspire the Taylor Force Act that was meant to cut off aid to the PLO's Palestinian Authority until it stopped funding terrorists. The legislation was watered down by all the usual suspects. And it's still being obstructed in the Senate.
Here, Taylor's father speaks about his experiences.
Force’s father said that he is often asked “what was Taylor like?” to which he responds, “I always use the comparison with the table with the glass half full of water in it. The pessimist says it’s half empty, the optimist says the glass is half full. Taylor’s glass wasn’t a glass. It was a barrel, and it was full of life and he shared that with everybody. He was concerned more about other people than himself.”
“Somebody came up to me one time and said, ‘I’m so sorry. Your son must’ve been in the wrong place at the wrong time.’ I corrected him. I said, ‘No. He was in the right place at the right time. He was doing what he wanted to do. He was learning about Israel and the Jewish culture. The terrorist was in the wrong place at the wrong time,’” added Stuart Force.
“There’s no right place for terrorism. There’s no right time for terrorism, anywhere. Any country that cherishes freedom and human rights. And that’s why we’re involved in getting this legislation pass.”
And it's our duty to make every place a wrong place for Islamic terrorists.
