Daniel Taub is a former Israeli ambassador to the United Kingdom. He served this post from 2011 – 2015. Currently, Mr. Taub is an international lawyer.
He also writes reports about the Middle East for various newspapers. Back in 2012, the Iranian government made some dangerous and very bold statements against the Israeli people. The nation had threatened to wipe Israel from the face of the Earth.
The Iranian government not only made this terrible prediction they were trying to back it up with their nuclear development plan. In other words, one of the reasons for this country to have nuclear weapons, was to eliminate Israel from the Middle East.

The Israeli people do not take threats lightly. For them it is a matter of life and death when an Islamic country says that they want to wipe them out of existence.
The Israeli people and their allies began to take action against Iran for their remarks. More importantly, they had taken the necessary steps to show Iran that they better think twice about attacking the small Israeli country. These happened during Daniel Taub’s time as ambassador.
Starting in 2012, many nations who were allies with Israel imposed sanctions against Iran and their nuclear development plan.
However, Daniel Taub did not believe that the sanctions would deter the Iranians from continuing their program. He was right. The Iranians continue to develop their nuclear program to this very day.
The Iranians nuclear development program began many years ago in the 1950s. It was put into motion by the United States. It was a part of the ATOMS of Peace Program that was popular in those days. Read more: Daniel Taub | Wikipedia and Daniel Taub | LinkedIn
The program remained in place for nearly three decades without a problem. However, the Iranian revolution took place in 1979.
After the last Shah of Iran was removed from power, the international community cut off the Iranian nuclear program. By the 1990s the Russians had helped Iran to revive their nuclear agenda.
Daniel Taub wanted the world to know that Iran has no intention of stopping their nuclear arms development. He realized that the Iranians have too many reasons for not stopping this program.
While he is no longer an Israeli ambassador, he still has a firm grasp about what is going on with this issue and how it impacts the Middle East. Hopefully, a workable resolution will be reached to resolve this issue.
