Due to the perception that the British had on the Israelis, some constituencies and campus had declared themselves Israeli free zones. One such constituency was Bradford West which was spearheaded by its MP, George Galloway. Nothing associated with the Israeli was accepted in such regions including business activities.
However, despite the ban, the former Israeli Ambassador Daniel Taub visited the area. He did not do it to ignore George’s ban, but he visited Bradford to honor some invitations he had received. From his observation, David Taub found that the people of Bradford were not actually keen on George’s ban but they were warm and ready to welcome diversity. This meant that George did not actually represent the people’s opinions but his own.
In his wise words, David Taub commented that the past of the Israeli people should not be taken to their future since they are in a process of making a better future for themselves. Although George Galloway has been an anti-Israel activist since time immemorial, David was never hard on his statements but he was able to reason uprightly.
Taub always tell people to focus on the future and leave what happened in the past. He advocates for better lives rather than miserable ones that can be caused by hate and pain which could have been created from the past.
He is an international lawyer by profession and had worked for Israeli’s foreign ministry in legal, political and diplomatic posts. He has been nominated for the award for developing trade and business. Taub is a public speaker and a lecturer and has been featured in some of the most famous broadcasts.

Apart from being actively involved in many roles, Daniel is an author and has written many articles that appear in some of the most influential journals. He is also a script writer and has written a diplomatic book that helps in understanding biblical text.
