Due to being unhappy with the Geneva Accord that was drawn up by the United Nations, Daniel Taub believes that the countries in the Middle East with mutual concerns over Iran’s nuclear aspirations need to work together to prevent a catastrophe from happening. He is encouraging countries to open up communications with each other even if they have a checkered past together for the greater good.
