happy to publish this nice and precious interview of the editorial team of ProMosaik e.V. with Dan McGowan of Righteous Jews. We are convinced that Dan is showing us a challenging path… but we have to move into this direction. There is no freedom and no peace without justice. And there is no justice without asking Palestinians to forgive Jews for their crimes.
Who are the righteous Jews?
This is the very easy and deep definition of what a righteous Jew is (source: www.righteousjews.org)
To be considered and selected, a “Righteous Jew” must
1.- Consider himself or herself to be Jewish. He or she does not have to be religious. Non-practicing Jews and even atheists can be considered.
2.- Have demonstrated solidarity with Palestinians as human beings, deserving of being treated equally with all other people in the lands between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River, one country with equal citizenship for all.
3.- Have faced disparagement, discrimination, or even death as a consequence of his or her standing up for the rights of Palestinians.
It is not important why a “Righteous Jew” has defended Palestinian rights or whether his or her actions were based on friendship, altruism, religious belief, humanitarianism, or simple human decency. Candidates may be considered posthumously.

Over half the population within the borders controlled by Israel is not Jewish. So after more than 130 years we still do not have a Jewish state. We have a state controlled by Jews, with a Jewish name, and a Jewish flag, and with laws that preference Jews over non-Jews, but for me that does not make historical Palestine a Jewish state.
