Excuse me, Gentlemen, but this is outright ridiculous. No serious historian or archaeologist would ever deny that the Western Wall is a part of the temple platform built by Herod the Great since 19 BC for his enlargement and enrichment of the Second Jewish Temple. It is described in detail by contemporary historians like Flavius Josephus and Tacitus and indeed traces of its Roman destruction in 70 AD are still visible. It is an undeniable fact that the Jewish Temple stood for nearly 1000 years on the smaller core of this platform. Therefore, the site of this temple is, first of all, a Jewish sanctuary and, secondary, holy to us Christians, too, since Jesus preached in this temple, which he venerated, as every Jew, as the House of God. The Muslim claim on this site is based on a dream. In a dream vision, their prophet Muhammad travelled on a heavenly horse first to Jerusalem and from there to heaven. May I say that a dream is a weaker claim than historical facts, which would easily be verified, if the Waqf would finally allow archaeological excavations on this site, instead of their barbaric acts of archaeological vandalism ...
