With the Middle East being as volatile as it and has been for generations, Daniel Taub had a lot on his plate as the Israeli International Ambassador to the United Kingdom.
This is a role that he did not take lightly and he put his best efforts in improving the relationship between Israel and England. Recently, he worked with young entrepreneurs from England to try to encourage connections between them and the Israeli ecosystem.
Daniel Taub worked with Google and Facebook with this effort and the three ran a contest where startups in their beginning stages of development could win training for their business in Israel.
Daniel Taub has even tried to bridge the gaps between religious groups by teaching Hebrew to other religious groups.
His curiosity drives him to keep making progress. Daniel Taub enjoys meeting the people he has during his career as an international diplomat and lawyer.
It’s very rewarding for him to be able to learn more about what these people are passionate about and he enjoys that they seem to really appreciate his curiosity and desire to know more about other cultures.
Daniel Taub was very concerned with the nuclear situation in Iran in recent years as he and many others believe they will have a nuclear arsenal very soon.
While the Geneva accord struck by the United Nations is supposed to prevent this from happening, Daniel Taub does not think it did enough to actually make a difference in the long run. He believes they could possess weapons-grade uranium despite being told they could only have uranium enriched to 3.5%.

This point lessened in importance when Iran installed a large centrifuge that is used to enrich the uranium already in their possession. Daniel Taub insists that this piece of equipment should have been decommissioned as part of the deal struck, but it was not.
This means that Iran could potentially have weapons-grade uranium very easily and very soon just with this centrifuge making it so the loosened sanctions with the country were essentially pointless and the world is still at risk of a nuclear attack.
Many agree and are putting the responsibility on the United Nations if such an attack occurs.
