Daniel A. McGowan is the executive director of Deir Yassin Remembered, an organization seeking to build a memorial in Deir Yassin, a former Palestinian-Arab village near Jerusalem, to commemorate a massacre there on April 9, 1948, in which 107 villagers were killed by forces from the Irgun and Lehi paramilitary groups.[1]

McGowan is professor emeritus of economics at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.[2] He is a columnist for Counterpunch, and the co-author, with Marc H. Ellis, of Remembering Deir Yassin: The Future of Israel and Palestine (1998). He also runs an organization called Righteous Jews, a play on the phrase righteous gentiles, for Jews willing to defend the rights of the Palestinians.
