The world is a dangerous and uncertain place. In order to make the best of things, we as a people need to work together for peace and harmony. Such is the case of Daniel Taub, a diplomat who represents his country of Israel with passion and vigilance.
Taub has been stationed in the United Kingdom for four years and during that time has managed to increase relations and trade with Great Britain and her joint regions more than any other ambassador has in the history of either country.

The changes that Daniel Taub has made in the United Kingdom makes his resignation of the position a sad one, but on the other hand, it would mean a return to the Middle East and the possibility to make positive changes there as well. The story of Daniel Taub is an interesting and inspiring one and one that can be used to motivate others into the life of civil service.
Daniel Taub began his exciting life as a British citizen and only decided to move to Israel permanently later on in life.
During a vacation with his family to the birthplace of Christ, Taub discovered his place of belonging. He immediately decided to move to Israel and become an official citizen there.
His reasoning was his Jewish roots; Taub is a devout Orthodox Jew and moving to Israel was like returning home after 2,000 years of exile. When he arrived he immediately set about making diplomatic changes in the surrounding countries, Western Europe and, ultimately, the world.
There has always been war in the Middle East, and when Israel became a new country after World war II they were attacked on all sides by Islamic states wanting to rid the world of their presence. The Israelites met these attackers head on and ended up defeating their combined forces.
After this event, which is known as the Six Days War, relations between the tiny country and her neighbors have been tense at best. Due to Daniel Taub’s work relations between Israel and a few of these Islamic countries, Egypt and Jordan, has increased to a degree that the three are basically friendly at this time.
This is a significant change for Israel, and if a return by Taub can make an even bigger difference than his decision to resign from his post in Great Britain is probably the best decision to make.
