Noor Dahri is a British-Pakistani writer and counter terrorism researcher. He is an executive director at Islamic Theology of Counter Terrorism (ITCT), which uses Islamic theology to counter Islamist extremism.

I do not know how influential the ITCT is. It does not have a strong social media presence, and looking at its team, it seems to be very light on experts on Islam whose views would sway Muslims.

Even so, any paper that shows how Islam does not approve of Palestinian terrorism is welcome, and any discussion on the topic in Islamic circles is welcome.

Dahri just released a new research paper, "The Month of Ramadan, Al-Aqsa Riots and Mischief: Islamic or Un-Islamic?" It examines the recent behavior of Palestinians on the Temple Mount from an Islamic perspective and determines that the stone throwing, arson and other attacks are forbidden according to Islam.

Dahri also says that Jews have the absolute right to live in Israel and Jerusalem according to the Koran.

The conclusion of the paper says:

Violence has no room in Islam whatsoever. One must understand that they cannot claim Islam is a religion of peace while committing a crime of violence and terrorism under the name of Islam. It is a great blasphemy to the religion and to the Lord when someone starts creating mischief on earth in their names. Israel is a land of prophets and the holy land on earth, which every religion accepts, yet some political and religious extremists commit acts of violence and terrorism in the blessed land which is mentioned several times in the holy Quran. 

There is no doubt that the holy land of Israel including Jerusalem is sacred to all religions and the people of all three divine religions (Islam, Judaism and Christianity) can live, work, visit the holy land but cannot claim the ownership of it at all because the ownership has already been given to the people of Israel (Jews) by Allah thousands of years ago. There is not any Quranic verse or Prophetic Hadith where such ownership has been transferred from Jews to Muslims. Instead, Allah has commanded Jews to enter the land of Israel which is given to them. 

“O my people! Enter the Holy Land which Allah has destined for you to enter. And do not turn back or else you will become losers.” (Quran 5:21)

Allah also decided to gather all Jewish people from all around the world in the holy land of Israel when the end time comes closer, which means, that Jewish people can live anywhere in the world but the time will come when they will travel across the world and will immigrate into Israel. 
Allah says in the holy Quran: "And we said to the Children of Israel afterwards, ‘scatter and live all over the world… and when the end of the world is near we will gather you again into the Promised Land” (Quran:17:104) 

The above-cited Quranic verses show the source for the belief that this land was divinely given to the people of Israel, and Muslims have no religious or historical claim to possess this land. Those non-Jews who are living, working and visiting Israel have special privileges from the Jewish state to exercise political, domestic, social and religious rights all around the holy land but can never claim the ownership according to the Shariah (Islamic) law. 

By holding politically motivated protests with violence, extremists not only break the commandments of Allah mentioned in the holy Quran but also go against the law of the land and those who commit such unlawful and un-Islamic activities should be prosecuted and punished according to the state’s law. The state of Israel has successfully given Muslims (Israeli Arabs) rights to live, educate, work, do business and practice their religion (Islam) without any prejudice and fear. There are more than 400 mosques run and paid for by the state of Israel. Therefore, Muslims have no political or religious justification to uprise against such a state. Aqsa Mosque is administrated by the Jordanian Waqf and security provided by Israel in order to maintain the peace and law and order situation. Millions of Muslims across the world are visiting Haram Sharif (Al-Aqsa) without any persecution, therefore it’s a Muslim’s duty to follow the law, keep order and maintain peace in the holy land and avoid committing acts that are violent or project terrorism. These actions can never please Allah, the Lord of the skies and earth, Muslims must think of these divine commandments before considering mischief in the holy land of Israel.
Dahri is part of a small but growing number of Muslim supporters of Israel, most of whom are regularly attacked - usually online, sometimes physically.  Because the Muslim world's media is so heavily censored, officially and by massive peer pressure, there is no coverage of their support where it would make the biggest difference. 

But with the Abraham Accords, there is a chance that such attitudes will spread and at least an honest debate about Israel and Palestinians can eventually occur in the Muslim world.
