If true, the Jews probably stayed away from the Temple Mount for centuries out of fear of decapitation! The Jews have been disproportionately kind to the Muslims since taking control of Jerusalem. They could have restricted access to the Mosque the way the Arabs restricted access the Western Wall to Jews. And if you think the Jewish historical link to Jerusalem is a fraud, read Roman History. There you'll find quite convincing accounts of the Jewish-Roman wars. Also look up the Arch of Titus.
