"I can't sit on the sidelines while families are being slaughtered"

Taylor Swift's security guard, who prefers to remain anonymous, was born on a kibbutz in Israel, as reported by Israel Today. He left his home country to work in the security business in the United States. He explained his decision to return to Israel in a statement sent to Variety. "I have a dream job that I love, great friends that I call family, and a very comfortable house. I didn't have to come here... But I couldn't sit on the sidelines while families were massacred and burned alive in their homes! Just because they're Jewish or Israeli," he said.

"They killed and slaughtered families in their beds, next to their pets! Then they burned the houses! Try to imagine that this is happening in your own neighborhood, in your neighbors' homes or in a family you know," he added, before concluding: "I'm not just on Israel's side, I'm on the side of humanity."
