[Quranic Reflection]: The Romans destroying of the Jewish temple, would it happen?
[Quranic Reflection]: The Romans destroying of the Jewish temple, would it happen?
A group of Quranic verses that holds an explicit prophecy kept me wondering about its reflection for so long.

These are the verses:

Quote:Sura 17, The Quran:

( 4 )   And We conveyed to the Children of Israel in the Scripture that, "You will surely cause corruption on the earth twice, and you will surely reach [a degree of] great haughtiness.

( 5 )   So when the [time of] promise came for the first of them, We sent against you servants of Ours - those of great military might, and they probed [even] into the homes, and it was a promise fulfilled.

( 6 )   Then We gave back to you a return victory over them. And We reinforced you with wealth and sons and made you more numerous in manpower

( 7 )   [And said], "If you do good, you do good for yourselves; and if you do evil, [you do it] to yourselves." Then when the final promise came, [We sent your enemies] to sadden your faces and to enter the temple in Jerusalem, as they entered it the first time, and to destroy what they had taken over with [total] destruction.

It is obviously speaking about "Jews having control over Jerusalem" for two exact times in 2 different ages:

1-The first control ends up in "the ravaging of Jews from Jerusalem by a mighty army, great in military power". This happened before the Quran was revealed "notice the word 'sent'". This happened in the First Jewish-Roman War:


Quote:Result Roman victory, destruction of Jerusalem and its Temple

2- Jews were victorious over "the same people" who ravaged them for the first time (i.e the Romans); their army was re-enforced with manpower and more wealth. This happened when a joint Jewish/Persian alliance defeated the Romans and retook Jerusalem -which had its name changed to Palaestina Secuda by the Romans:


Quote:In 614, both Palaestina Prima and Palaestina Secunda were conquered by a joint Sasanian-Jewish army.


3-The third event is where the prophecy begins: the same enemies that Jews defeated in the past will sadden their faces (as the verse says) and enter the temple again just like they entered it the first time while destroying what the state of the Jews had taken over.

My assumption -as I had shown above with historical references- is that the "Romans" were the people who destroyed the Jewish temple first, then got defeated by the Jews. The prophecy says that the same people who won the first time, will invade and take the Jewish temple once again.

i.e the descendants of the Romans.

What matters though is that the descendants of the Romans are actually "eastern descendants (modern day Turkey) and western descendants (modern day western-Europe and the U.S).

Is the west going to attack Israel ?

Or is it Turkey?

The days will prove.
