Christian Rights to Jerusalem have been left out. Why?

Reader comment on item: Anticipating Trump's "Deal of the Century"

The claim to a presence is Jerusalem by Christians is much stronger than that of Muslims.
Indeed, Muhammed (prophet) dismissed Jerusalem by changing the direction of prayer to Mecca.
80 years after Muhammed died Malik s son reconstructed the Christian Byzantine church of St Mary and converted it into a mosque by adding an onion on top, he then named it El-Aksa so it sounds like the one in the Quran. therefore Muhammed could not have had this Mosque in mind when he complied the Quran.
This mosque should be reconverted to the church of St Mary and given to its rightful owners, the Christians.

Christians should be given an equal say in any dealings on Jerusalem.
