On Wikipedia’s page dedicated to Muslim supporters of Israel, Noor Dahri, Founder and Executive Director of Islamic Theology of Counter Terrorism-ITCT, a UK-based Counter Islamist Terrorism Think Tank, is listed among “additional Muslim figures who have publicly voiced support for Israel,” and he doesn’t yet have his own dedicated Wiki page. He should. Especially when he is now fast becoming the new target of the kind of Muslim activists we’ve been more used to.
Last Friday, Noor Dahri was on the Temple Mount and reported:
I was so ashamed of to see that I had free access to any Jewish religious area in Kotal to pray and no any single religious Jewish ever bothered to stop me but Jewish weren’t even allowed to come closer to Damascus Gate! (One Jewish came close and said “God Bless you” when I was filming video).
Where is freedom of religion and expression. We Muslims have right to go anywhere in Israel but Jewish people have no right to even go to certain areas of Jerusalem. This is the great example of Muslims Apartheid in Jerusalem.
Hate responses soon followed. Shahid Ali Khan, who tweeted images of Noor Dahri, described him as a “staunchest pro-Israeli,” and added: “I request the people of Palestine and especially Jerusalem’s residents, if you see him next in the area of Holy Masjid al-Aqsa must stop him.”
Noor Dahri lives in London, and his Facebook page has 10,042 followers.

On August 17, he told his Facebook followers in Israel: “An exciting time has come for me to visit Israel for 10 days, the land of dreams, love, peace, and coexistence. The holy land of divine faiths, Abrahamic Prophets, and the land of Blessings. Insha’Allah. Those who curse (create chaos and violence in the holy land) will be cursed by Allah. Ameen. I will be with you soon.
The rest was so lovely, that I decided to just embed the whole thing for your enjoyment.
