Daniel Taub is one of the greatest ambassadors Israel has ever had in Britain. Despite the uncertainty in certain quarters regarding Mr. Daniel’s appointment as the Ambassador of the State of Israel to the Court of St James’s, it was clear beyond a reasonable doubt at his departure that his appointment was the best decision ever.
Since his appointment in 2011-2015, Daniel Taub has helped grow and strengthen the relationship between Israel and Britain both in diplomacy and commerce.
Mr. Daniel despite being of the Jewish origin is no stranger in Britain as he was born in Great Britain in 1962 and schooled in Oxford University College in London and Harvard University- Kennedy School of Government. After school, Daniel moved back to Israel in 1989 where he served his country in different positions including being a combat medic at the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and a law intern at Israel’s international law division.
These two positions propelled Mr. Taub to his diplomatic and legal position when he started working for the country’s Foreign Ministry Department in 1991. Learn more about Daniel Taub: http://www.behance.net/danieltaub
Reminiscing on his experience as an ambassador to Britain and his first interview for the job with her highness the Queen, Daniel Taub is confident of the fact that he has been able to bring the two countries closer than they were before. Though the achievements may look good on paper, the actual reality of the matter has been different.
Taub’s diplomatic efforts were always centered towards academia, creating solid strategic joint research co-operation between the two countries, and enforcing trade agreements. These efforts have paid off as currently, Israel is on a path of drastic changes thanks to the assistance from Great Britain.
Ambassadorship aside, Mr. Daniel is an international lawyer and a writer who has made enormous contributions to Israel and the greater Middle East region at large through his writings.
Daniel Taub has been seasoned columnist at the Daily Telegram, The Times, the Huffington Post, and the Guardian, just to name but a few. He also wrote the book Parasha Diplomatit. Mr. Daniel’s writings majorly comprise of Biblical insights where he analyzes a section of the Torah adding some touch of humor and politics to it.
Even at his retirement, there is still more we can expect from Daniel such as lecturing on international law and negotiation theory that are his specialty and writing speech for the Israeli President, Chaim Herzog.
