That is the title of what Sheik Abdul Hadi Palazzi (wwww.Tabletmag.com), an Italian Muslim & Koranic scholar who examined what the Koran says about the connection of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel: 'Far from negating the historical claims of a Jewish presence on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, the Koran actually confirms Jewish accounts of Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem & supports claims that the Land of Israel was given to the Jews by G-D.'

All Muslims, up until the 20th century, unanimously accepted that the Haram al-Shariff on which the Dome of the Rock today stands is the same place where Solomon's Temple once stood.

The Koran explicitly refers to the return of the Jews to the Land of Israel before the Last Judgment when it says in the Sura of the Children of Israel, verse 104: 'And thereafter We (G-D) said to the Children of Israel: "Dwell securely in the Promised Land. And when the last warning will come to pass, we will gather you together in a mingled crowd."
