Daniel A. McGowan
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.
McGowan is professor emeritus of economics at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. 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.
