Daniel Taub was sent to be Israel’s ambassador to England. He first met the Queen to present his credentials in 2011. His suit was typical of what you would expect of an ambassador. There was one thing that you may not have thought would be there, though. Daniel was proudly wearing his Kippah. His message was clear.
He was born in England, made aliyah to Israel, and returned as an ambassador. The thing that will never change about him was his religious beliefs as an Orthodox Jew.
Daniel Taub says that he was happy to work as an ambassador between his former country and his new country. His goal, he said, was to bring the two countries together. After a few years on the job, he said that he thinks he accomplished what he set out to do. In fact, other people think he did a great job as well.
There was a farewell ceremony when he left after finishing his job as ambassador. Everyone there loved him and cheered. The fact is that people think he is the most popular envoy to Great Britain from Israel since Shlomo Argov back in the 1960s. Through every criss, Daniel was there to bridge the relationships. He went on media outlets and talked to politicians.
Daniel Taub said that Britain is an important country for Israel. He said Britain is the centerpiece of Europe and is very influential in many areas of economy. He said that his main goal was to help people understand the position that Israel took. There has been a lot of cooperation between the two countries.
This cooperation has been apparent in every instance when an issue arises in the Middle East. Whether it was the Gaza crisis, or ISIS, or the Syrian civil war, England and Israel have worked together to come up with solutions. Yes, there is a lot of turmoil in the Middle East, but Daniel says that he believes there is a silver lining.
In addition, there is a lot going on behind the scenes. Israel and Arab nations are aligning themselves. Countries such as Saudi Arabia are working with Israel.
According to Bloomberg, Daniel Taub finished his job as envoy in 2015. Now, he is the head of the Yad Hanadiv Foundation in Jerusalem. He is an expert in international law. In addition, he helped out a lot during the peace process. He has received awards for his excellent work.
