One important fact left out
You left out one important fact - in order to placate the muslims, after conquering the temple mount ( Mota Gur broadcasts " Har Habayit B'yadanu")Israel gives control to them enabling them to stone Jews praying at the Kotel, excavate and destroy relics from their and forbidding Jews from praying on the mountain where Isaac was bound, Jacob had his famous dream and both temples stood
