Daniel Taub, the former Israeli Ambassador to the UK, was born and raised Jewish in the United Kingdom before immigrating to Israel in the early 1990’s. The international lawyer is highly educated with three degrees and a UK Certification for Lawyers obtained in 1985.
He earned a BA in literature from the University College of Oxford in 1983 followed by an LLM in law from the University College of London. In 2002, he continued his education by getting his MPA from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in 2002.
As well as being the former ambassador, he is currently employed at the Yad Hanadiv Foundation as the Director of Strategy and Planning. He has been with this Israeli based company since 2015. During his career, Daniel Taub was also a speechwriter for Israeli President Chaim Herzog.
Recently, Daniel Taub and the majority of the Middle East have been highly concerned with the nuclear ambitions of Iran despite the efforts of the UN to slow the program down.
Daniel Taub insists that the Geneva accord enacted to address the problem in Iran was not enough and in fact is incomplete with language that can easily be interpreted different ways to suit the needs of whoever is reading enacting it.
He believes this will cause problems trying to enforce the agreement. In fact, the accord is disagreed with by many to the point that some in Israel are telling the UN that they will be at fault if the Middle East is subject to a nuclear attack by Iran in a few years.
Many in Israel and surrounding countries are very concerned with the situation and do not believe the Geneva accord will do much if anything to slow down Iran’s development or purchase of a nuclear arsenal. Read more: Daniel Taub | Crunchbase and Daniel Taub | Ideamench
This has led to countries who are typically antagonistic towards each other to consider being open to discussions for the safety and future of the Middle East.
While these countries may have many differences in their cultures, religions, and internal goals for their country, they all have a unanimous goal to not be the victims of a nuclear attack. This openness may help bring an end to many of the problems in the Middle East.
Highly involved in the Jewish community, Daniel Taub is seen as a role model to many in his community and is frequently invited to many engagements. He is the father of six children and currently resides near the Jerusalem area in Israel.
