Daniel Taub had become the Ambassador that other diplomats will look up to for many years to come and draw inspiration and guidance from his achievements in the relations between his country Israel and the United Kingdom.
In the four years of his tenure, the former Israeli Ambassador to the United Kingdom brought many changes to the trade between the nations, to the education that Israeli receive in the United Kingdom and to the way the public thinks and reacts to Israeli.
The campus had been one of the leading hurdles in the fruitful dialogue between the two nations as many campus grounds were lacking tolerance towards Israeli students.
Some had even proclaimed without authorization that the particular school should be made free of Israeli students. The case with Bradford and George Galloway is also a stark example of such intolerance.
Daniel Taub is an expert at communication, negotiation, and reaching results through peaceful dialogue even when the other side is not willing to converse. Daniel Taub has shown that there are many forms of discussion and statements can be said through actions.

One such statement through action was made when Daniel Taub visited the Bradford city after receiving an invitation to do so from several institutions. What that said to George Galloway was that simply because he had stated that Bradford is not welcoming to anything connected to Israel does not mean that the people of Bradford have the same opinion.
Undoubtedly, Daniel Taub was right to visit the city and communicate with the citizens instead of taking one individual’s word for what the masses think. Other people would directly step into arguments with Galloway, but that is not what Daniel Taub believes to be the start of a fruitful discussion.
Bradford was very welcoming, and people happily talked to Taub and dismissed Galloway’s bold and misplaced statements about the city and its people.
Between 2011 and 2014, the trade between Israel and the United Kingdom also transformed. The business more than doubled as a vast number of Israeli companies started opening their UK offices across the country. Making the countries present in each other’s markets was a significant step forward for the United Kingdom and Israel.
After Danial Taub, the torch has been handed to his successor Mark Regev. Daniel Taub is now working at the Yad Hanadiv Foundation in Jerusalem also known as the Rothschild Foundation.
