The Israeli American Council (IAC) presented on Sunday a special "Activism Award" to Robbi and Stuart Force. Robbi and Stuart Force are the bereaved parents of Taylor Force, an American veteran and graduate student who was killed in a 2016 Palestinian Arab terrorist attack in Jaffa, Tel Aviv.

Taylor is the namesake of the Taylor Force Act, whose passage earlier this year ensured that U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority will now be contingent on the P.A.’s ceasing of its financial rewards for terrorists and their families.

"The IAC was one of the earliest and strongest supporters of the Taylor Force Act,” said Stuart Force, speaking at the podium with his wife, Robbie. “People ask us where we got the strength – we didn’t find it, you gave it to us.”
