The diplomat was informed about the case of anti-Israel sentiments in a city named Bradford, and according to his informant, certain individuals are preventing Israelis from entering the city, despite the huge number of Israelis living inside.
Daniel Taub wanted to show the world that discrimination has no place in the present society, so he headed to the city of Bradford and confronted those who are against Israel.
He visited the city hall first and met with the city’s mayor. The city mayor assured Daniel Taub that the news surrounding Israeli ban in the city is coming from small extremist groups who are spreading hatred against the Israeli people.
Daniel Taub was delighted hearing that the city government is protecting the people against those who are spreading hate. He then posted outside the city hall for a photograph with the mayor of Bradford.
Then, he visited some of those who are living inside Bradford, and asked them about their condition, and questioning them whether it is difficult to live in the city as an Israeli.
Daniel Taub was given honest answers, and he promised that he will be monitoring their condition and that he will be working with the government of the United Kingdom to ensure their safety.
The Israeli community in Bradford felt the genuine compassion that Daniel Taub displayed, and they came up with the conclusion that he is the best diplomat ever.
