Daniel Taub Presents Credentials to Queen with a Twist

When Daniel Taub became Israel’s new ambassador to Great Britain, he presented his credentials to the Queen herself. However, there were a few differences in his presentation about which one might want to take note. He was a British citizen, having been born in the United Kingdom in 1962. He was a writer, and he was an international lawyer. Read more: Daniel Taub | Wikipedia and Daniel Taub | Ideamench

He had always been a bright, dignified man. So, it was a particular honor, not only for him, but for Great Britain and Israel as well, for him to serve as ambassador to Great Britain from 2011 to 2015. He had accepted this assignment as a favor to his government in Israel.

He wore a particular outfit. It was not a simple suit that an ambassador would wear. There were some differences in this outfit, in this suit, so to speak. He wore the normal coat and tails and the trimmings of a diplomat, of course. Everything was proper, and everything unfolded according to the rules of diplomacy. Except one small thing.

What made this presentation unusual is that Mr. Taub was wearing a Kippah, the symbol of an Orthodox Jew. In order to accept this office, Mr. Taub had to give up his British citizenship and become an official for the nation of Israel. Great Britain had been Mr. Taub’s residence since having been born there in 1962.

Taub had moved his family —- all of his children — to the nation of Israel some time in the past. He was proud of the long years of heritage and history of the Jews in his adopted homeland, and wanted his family to share in that pride.

Mr. Taub defied the British MP by visiting the city of Bradford and declaring, along with the former Bradford West MP George Galloway, that Bradford was an Israeli Free Zone.” No repercussions were heard from the MP or any other source at the time, however.

Indeed, Daniel Taub has made an international name for himself as a man of courage and forthrightness, and it has been Israel’s gain to have such a man as Daniel Taub serve as an official for their government.
