We see here that the answer sought after cannot be given under the current understanding of the two holy writs of the two distinct ideologies that concern themselves with Israel and the rule of Jerusalem.

First, if in fact had the Quran actually confirmed the Hebrew Holy Scriptures, then the Quran would have been nothing more than a commentary of them, like the Talmud, Mishna, or Matthew Henry's commentaries. Instead, they are writings of the Prophet of Islam that contradict the Hebrew Holy Scriptures, and the proof of that would in the desires of the followers of Islam to see the Quran validated instead of the Holy Bible. Would this be denied by any who would see the Quran as the preferred text?

Second, we again see an attempt to make the al-Madhi the same person as Yeshua HaMashiach, which as most everyone who follows either ideology knows, that cannot be, for if so, then the Prophet of Islam would have made that claim when he uttered his words of the Quran, and the return to claim the throne would already have happened, according to the Hebrew Holy Scriptures. But we know this did not happen, so there needs to be a better assessment from the Quran regarding this.

The real emergence of the facts are that, yes, there will be a reckoning of whose prophecies are to be realized, and whose are going to be reckoned with differently, that in fact the next moment in prophetic terms is just about ready to unfold. If you want ot examine something with open eyes, look at the Ezekiel prophecies concerning Israel and the rest of the world. If the Quran is supposed to contain contemporary passages regarding the consecutive fulfillments, please cite the Quranic passage that matches Ezekiel Ch 38, 39 for comparison. This will be more informative than an off-site reference that does not answer this specific question.

Any applicable information (without the sarcasm) would be helpful.
