Daniel Taub Presents Credentials to Queen with a Twist

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.
