In November 2013, Daniel Taub who was the Israeli Ambassador to the United Kingdom came up with a brilliant idea that there should be new alliances in the Middle East between those who have a history of working together and opposed to war so as to counter a threat that was posed by Iran in its nuclear ambitions.
Daniel Taub also added that his country adheres strictly to the Geneva accord and would try level best within its means to contain Iran’s threat. He also expressed sentiments that Israel was considering slowing down Iran’s progress when matters related to the acquiring of a nuclear weapon were concerned.
Speaking on the same location about the opposition of Shia alliances in the Middle East, he again expressed the need for nations to cooperate. He said that looking at the region, there was an axis that runs between four affected regions (Tehran, Damascus, Gaza and Beirut).
He added that his nation was not feeling isolated when it came to worrying about the nuclear threat since the other nations were affected as well.
He expressed confidence that if all and sundry rose above their paradigms and immediate differences, they would form a very stable security block that would be unshaken by no enemy. Asked whether he believed that such changes and alliances would work, he expressed hope and confidence saying they would work because it is in everybody’s interest.
However, he said that despite there being not many solid relationships between the neighboring countries, Israel’s relationship with the West was as healthy as ever. He added that his country and the West share major security concerns when matters related to nuclear weapons are concerned.
