So, in complete contradiction to the suppositions you have made elsewhere which allude to a difference of historical records, independent of Biblical sources, that the al-Masjid al-Aqsa is older than the surrounding area of Mt. Moriah? If there at the time of Abraham, who came after Adam by generations, why did Abraham not make his sacrifice there?

Resorting to your prescription of a construction period of the al-Ka'bah in the time of Adam, do the inscriptions of the structure of al-Ka'bah match that of al-Aqsa if there are only 40 years difference?

Do you recognize the first appearance of Yeshua, the son of Mary, Son of man in a Temple setting as He was performing the required obedience to the law as a youth, later to be teaching the scribes the errors of their ways in Aramaic?

You mention that the Islamic Prophet consorted with the al-Maseeh and Gabriel at al-Masjid al-Aqsa, which means that the timing of the Umayyad period must be in concert with that meeting-yet there are inconsistencies.

What of the Egyptian period; or the Roman conquests; or of the Chaldeans; all of whom have proven historical control over the location, yet their chronicles do not make mention of a Muslim pre-history. These are questions you may feel compelled to overlook; yet if you desire creditability, these are issues that if your compatriot Muslims are willing to die for, should it not be for truth?
