He revealed that he didn’t think the Geneva accord would do much to hamper the nuclear threat that had been coming from Iran as the country worked to achieve nuclear power. Along with these possible alliances, Israel sent its own national security team to Washington to speak with American officials.
Taub believes that many of the other countries in the region of Israel and in other parts of the world would agree that there are many radical groups in the area between Tehran to Gaza.
He also commented that many countries probably see things the same way as Israel does and that if the most essential of concerns could be agreed upon there could be an alliance.
Daniel Taub was asked about the possibility of a relationship with surrounding countries, and he responded that there were many changes that were creating openings for partnerships that wouldn’t have been thought about before.
He commented that Israel’s relationship with its Western allies including the United States were going well even though they didn’t agree on the deal made with Iran.

He went on to explain that while it appeared that sanctions and other deals made with Iran would have a significant effect, that he didn’t believe they would. The reason for this according to Taub is because the deal will not effectively keep Iran from making a bomb.
Daniel Taub spoke more about the deal made with Iran and commented that Israel’s concern was that the deal didn’t take care of everything that it should have.
He feels that there was a a lot of deception involved and pointed to the fact that no centrifuges were taken apart and that, in fact, all of the centrifuges will still be operating after the agreement was made.
Taub felt that Iran wouldn’t be any further from attaining nuclear weapons at the end of the deal than it was at the beginning of it. Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s Prime Minister, shared Taub’s opinion and had an angry telephone conversation with President Obama at the time.
Daniel Taub believes that only time will tell what effects the nuclear deal made with Iran will have on his country and the rest of the world, and he hopes that the global community will do more in the future to shut down countries who threaten other countries with nuclear destruction.
