Most people think that the life of an ambassador is quite simple. All they need to do is attend dinner and cocktail parties, carry out political briefing, conduct academic roundtable conferences and offer business consultations.
But, the responsibility of an ambassador is much more, and it has been shown by Daniel Taub. He was chosen as the ambassador of Israel to the UK from 2011 till 2015. He carried out his duty with utmost passion and dedication making him one of the most successful ambassadors of Israel.
Daniel Taub was up for the difficult time he expected to encounter while in the UK as an ambassador because of the problems between the two countries. But, he managed to turn things around and stood up for the Jewish community with full of zeal and energy. He made a significant impact on the relations between the two countries and expected that the relationship remains this way for many centuries to come. Read more: Daniel Taub | Wikipedia
Many events showed his wits, but nothing compares to the one at Bradford where MP George Galloway made a speech where he expected the city to become an Israel free city. Daniel Taub was invited by the community leaders to show to the world that they are a friendly community and such speech will not be tolerated.
During a meeting in central London, George Galloway called Israel as an illegal and savage state in the speech that caused a huge uproar in the entire country and drew criticism from other countries as well. Learn more about Daniel Taub: http://www.daniel-taub.com/ and http://www.daniel-taub.co.il/
West Yorkshire police received thousands of complaints against George, and numerous online petitions were asking him to be charged with criminal offense. Daniel Taub came to Bradford within a few days after the speech and spoke to the leaders of the Jewish community and also other religious leaders.
After the meeting, he talked to the press and said that during his stay in Bradford, the only thing he saw was tolerance and cooperation among the different communication. He added that Galloway voice did not represent the voice of Bradford and expected people to distant themselves from such hatred feelings.
Daniel Taub has only wanted the best for Israel and has helped deepen the relationships with the UK. Multiple trade opportunities were explored and opened allowing the stagnant Israeli economy to grow further.
He has also won numerous awards for his work as an ambassador and he aims to do much more even after his tenure is over.
