Daniel Taub, the former ambassador to the United Kingdom from Israel, said in an interview that he loves reading books and learning more information. He said that he recently read a book by Yehuda Avner, who was also an ambassador from Israel the UK, and it was extremely interesting. It talked about how the world would have turned out if Israel was created ten years earlier.
He also said that one thing he regrets about his time as an ambassador is not going to the theaters in London as often as he wanted to with his family. He was just so busy with his work and with improving the relationship between the two countries that he had no time, but during his last few days of holidays in London, he made sure to go to a lot of theaters with his wife and kids.
Daniel Taub is a well known workaholic. He works most of the time but that does not mean that as an ambassador, he does not have time to meet with various people. He met with people who were his friends, as well as people who were not his friends. He said that as an ambassador, there is a very good chance that if you want to meet with someone and you invite them to a meeting that you will actually get to meet them. That is one thing that he did during the times that he was not working.
He said that he loved meeting with people who influenced public opinion, meaning people who were media commentators, leaders of communities, and so on. He believes that you should meet with people who oppose your views as well. Sometimes, he would promise to keep the netting private so that they would not be unmotivated to meet with him. He developed relationships with a lot of people, and he hopes that those relationships will continue.
Daniel Taub was born in the United Kingdom and moved to Israel when he was a young man. He served as a combat medic in the Israeli Defence Forces and became a speechwriter for the President of Israel at the time, Chaim Herzog. He is the second ambassador to the United Kingdom from Israel that was actually born there. He appreciates both countries, he told the Queen when he presented his credentials, and wants to help both of them.
