While many Western countries are praising the recent Geneva accord concerning Iran’s desire to acquire a nuclear program, people like Daniel Taub are highly opposed stating that it will do little good in dissuading Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.
Daniel Taub is an Israeli Ambassador to the UK. The sponsors of the bill are touting it as one of the most significant deals in the history of the Islamic State since 1979 despite the protests of many in the Middle East and other countries.
Daniel Taub does not think Iran will even be slowed down from purchasing its first nuclear bomb because of the deal and doesn’t think the Geneva accord was enough as it didn’t include everything that was needed for the safety of Israel and the surrounding countries in the Middle East.
The accord did not remove any of the equipment that Iran already possesses that is required for nuclear capabilities and still allowed for nuclear enrichment in exchange for UN inspections and the easing of certain sanctions that had been in place concerning Iran.

While the West insists that the accord does not ensure the right to Uranium enrichment for Iran, Iran highly disagrees as the different parties have different interpretations of the bill. Daniel Taub fears that these differences in interpretation will lead to problems when the accord is actually being enacted.
In Israel, there are many citizens who are very angry towards the UN for signing this bill. In fact, many believe that if there is a nuclear attack on Israel from Iran it will be due to the accord not providing the protection that Israel and surrounding countries need from Iran’s potential or nuclear weapons.
While the accord may have restricted Iran to not having Uranium that is enriched to over 5 percent, without the removal of their equipment like a large centrifuge they can easily enrich lower percentage uranium to weapons-grade. Read more: Daniel Taub | LinkedIn and Daniel Taub | Crunchbase
While focusing on uranium enrichment a few years ago may have been important, it doesn’t need to be as large of a focus if the UN is still allowing them to possess and use this equipment that Daniel Taub is opposed to.
While the West has portrayed the current president of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, as a relative moderate the people of Israel highly disagree.
While he may not be as strictly conservative as the past president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who was a staunch Halocaust denier, he is still believed to be dangerous.
