During the four years that Daniel Taub has served as the Israeli Ambassador to the court of St. James he has helped to build trade between the countries of Israel and Britain. In fact, right on the heels of him resigning, it has been revealed that trade is two times what it was, now, than before he arrived. Along with this, cultural ties and other important features of the relationship between the countries have improved, markedly. So much have they improved that Sajid Javid commented at the Israeli Business Awards that a golden era of trade had begun under the watch of Mr. Taub.

Daniel Taub was born in the United Kingdom and started his tenure as Israels Ambassador to Britain in 2011. He has expressed his concern over the fact that college campuses in Britain were beginning to show some anti-Semitic tendencies and explained that it is important that every person’s views and beliefs get equal representation in colleges. He commented that it is especially important that people can express themselves without having to feel afraid. Mr. Taub made history, of sorts, when he visited the city of Bradford after the city’s MP, George Galloway, called it an “Israel-free zone.” Everyone is now waiting to see who will succeed Taub as his time as Ambassador has come to an end.
