Daniel Taub, the Israeli Ambassador to the United Kingdom has spoken at length about the importance of the new partnerships needed in the Middle East between Israel and former enemies to oppose the still looming threat caused by the desire to develop nuclear weapons on the part of Iran.
Taub expressed while giving an interview to ‘The Independent’ that Israel does not believe that the agreement signed by Tehran and other leaders of the world result in an end to Iran’s bid to acquire nuclear weapons.

Recently a national security team from Israel traveled to Washington to speak with officials in America who have traditionally championed the causes of the Jewish State. But Daniel Taub explains that this particular situation may depend upon Israel seeking out more radical alliances that before may have seemed like unthinkable gestures.
Mr. Taub gives examples of his point by pointing out the potential of partnering with Sunni countries that have as much to fear in regards to Iran obtaining nuclear weapons as anyone else.
Daniel Taub was questioned as to whether a partnership with many of these counties could realistically happen after so many years of animosity regarding the Jewish State’s occupation of Palestinian territory.
His answer was the recent changes in the region are forcing many leaders to consider possibilities that they would not have considered in the past. Taub feels that this phenomenon as open to door to opportunities for diplomacy that did not previously exist.
Mr. Taub also explains that countries in the Middle East that seek to progress from past positions and facilitate future prosperity are carefully considering the idea of forming an alliance with Israel.
Daniel Taub is clear in the assertion that its relationship with its Western allies is still intact despite some friction over the agreement signed with Tehran.
The deal signed with Iran is being applauded as the first of its kind with the country since 1979. William Hague, Foreign Secretary, received a great deal of praise from all involved for the UK’s involvement with the deal.
The signed agreement covers a six month period initially and will result in sanctions against Iran being lessened if the country promises to slow the pace of uranium enrichment and allows more access to enrichment plants to United Nations inspectors.
Mr. Hague praised Iran for agreeing to a number of important issues and has taken a major step for to protect the world from the danger of nuclear arms buildup.
