Daniel Taub has become one of Israel’s most beloved and endearing ambassadors in history. He was originally the Israeli ambassador to the United Kingdom. In 2011, as ambassador, he had the opportunity to meet with the Queen of England. Daniel Taub was the premiere Israeli diplomat at the time and was honored to be returning to his home country. In what felt like an icebreaker the Queen of England asked him: How did it feel to be a representative to the very country he had been born in?
Daniel Taub responded saying it was a pleasure and was happy to have the opportunity to bring the two countries closer together and build bridges between the two world powers that were not previously there or had since been neglected. Daniel Taub told the queen that Israel feels like his homeland but his ancestors come from the United Kingdom. He’s focused as ambassador on issues such as technology and the economy.
Daniel Taub later retired from his role and politics in general four years later. Daniel Taub was so well respected that many from England’s Jewish community came to see him and give him a proper send off. A handful of opinion polls have revealed that Taub is considered to be one of the most popular Israeli political diplomats to Britain of all time.
Many years later, Daniel Taub opened up about him leaving politics. He spoke about what he thought added to his popularity and success and said that him building bridges and not burning them was key to any political success he made and sought the greater good over his own personal bias. Daniel Taub set himself apart from politicians who are rarely open minded and netural, by believing that what was good for the nation of Israel was good for him and others in the world.
Now that he’s no longer in the political world, he has become a frequent writer for The Times, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian and the Huffington Post. He specializes on issues such as Israel and the Middle East. He recently wrote a script for an Israeli based drama series. Daniel Taub has become a top lecturer and public speaker and has been interviewed by CNN, Sky News, BBC Radio and Hardtalk.
