Daniel Taub is noted to be an international lawyer and diplomat. He has been the Israeli ambassador to the UK, and joined the Israeli Foreign Ministry in the 1990s. This was his opening into Israeli diplomacy. He also has credentials as an international writer and lecturer. His area of expertise is international law and negotiation theory.
He also served as speech writer for former Israeli President, Chaim Herzog. Taub has articles published in several news dailies including “The Huffington Post”, “The Guardian”, and “The Telegraph”. He has written extensively about Israel from a religious and political standpoint.
In a November 2013 article published in “The Independent News,” Daniel Taub voiced genuine concern resulting from the Geneva Deal signed between Iran and other nations. He felt this accord failed to address Iran’s military program or nuclear proliferation.
Moreover, shortly after the accord was signed it became apparent that in principle, Tehran and the signing nations differed on interpretation of some key terms. Daniel Taub viewed Iran’s interest in achieving long-term stability in the middle east with skepticism as a result of the noted difference in understanding.
In the article, Daniel Taub suggested that the Jewish state may assess its options in how to best deal with the Shia alliance that extends from Tehran to Beirut to as far as the Gaza. He feels a viable option is for Israel to cultivate relations with numerous Sunni nations or gulf states. Iran and the Shia alliance may share in common the desire to make good on its threat to abolish the Jewish state, if necessary by nuclear means.
Israel and the Sunni nations would obviously feel the devastating effect were such a threat realized. Finding areas of mutual cooperation, according to Daniel Taub, are the basis for building relations between Israel and Sunni countries.
