Jean Daniel (born 21 July 1920), also known as Jean Daniel Bensaid, is an Algerian-born French Jewish journalist and author. He is the founder and executive editor of Le Nouvel Observateur weekly. He was born in Blida, Algeria. He is a member of the Saint-Simon Foundation think-tank.

In La prison juive: Humeurs et méditations d'un témoin (The Jewish Prison), Daniel argues that prosperous Jews in the west live in a self-imposed prison made of up of three invisible walls: the idea of the Chosen People, Holocaust remembrance, and support for Israel.[1]
