Yisrael Harel (1938-), born in Romania, is a Fellow at the Hartmann Institute in Jerusalem and a columnist for Ha'aretz. He was one of the founders of Gush Emunim and is a former Chairman of the "Council of Settlers in Judea, Samaria and Gaza" -- in other words of the council of settlers in the West Bank and Gaza. He is a former editor-in-chief of Nekuda - a monthly journal of the Religious Zionist settler movements, which Noam Chomsky has described as an "extremist newspaper". Harel is a co-founder of NGO Monitor, a far-right "monitoring" group specialized in smearing human rights organizations.

He lives in the settlement of Ofra in the West Bank. Ofra, a religious settlement with about 2000 people, was established in 1975.

He heads (2005) the recently established Institute for Zionist Strategy.

His son is Itai Harel, an extremist settler co-founder of Migron.
