As Ambassador to Israel, Daniel Taub is the one man who “stand in the gap” for the ancient country. If anything concerns him, he will sound the alarm and throw out the lifeline in order to represent his country to the rest of the world. Indeed, one of the most pressing concerns he might have would be an Iran with a fully capable nuclear device.
Taub has floated many ideas in regards to conquering this threat, including the idea that the Jewish state should consider some alliances with some longstanding rivals in order to try to assuage the threat posed by a nuclear Iran. Taub hearkens back to the Geneva accord, which was signed in 2013. He has noted that even with that accord being the rule – Iran still has nuclear ambitions five years later.
Taub actually even believes that cooperation between Israel and Sunni states such as the Gulf Countries and Saudi Arabia might be necessary in order to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran. He also believes that there are some positives, however. These would include the fact that sanctions against Iran were eased in return for their cooperation with U.N. Inspectors.
However, according to Daniel Taub not even a single centrifuge was dismantled after this deal was created. Progress? Maybe in the eyes of liberal apologists, but for those of us living in the real world not so much. Read more: Daniel Taub | Wikipedia and Daniel Taub | Ideamench
The dominant elephant in the room after the signing of this deal occurred about a day after the signing of it. Does Iran have the right to enrichment, even though they claim it is just for providing electrical power? Some say yes, and some say no. The fallout in the international community was quite severe, with many saying they were furious at the deal.
Benjamin Netanyahu said that the world was a less safer place. Barack Obama said that he was going to “ratchet up the pressure.” The Chinese Foreign Ministry said that there needs to be a comprehension resolution and this wasn’t it.
Finally, David Cameron said that the world continues to need “persistent diplomacy” in order to solve these concerns. Taub is right to be alarmed, and hopefully the powers that be will continue to “stand in the gap” to keep Israel and the rest of the world safe.
