    The entire Mount is sacred soil for Jews, not mere localized sites. The South and East Walls are part of the Extension that the mosque now sits on, but it was not extended westerly, though the Wall was raised, the earlier stair accesses were preserved and enlarged. I don't know what point you are trying to make since Herod's additions were made simultaneously and served a sacred function. Herods addition to the Temple building was upwards with a false front facade, ornate sidewall facades including a false 'grill windows' in the Roman style, steped enterance, enormous double gated enterance (Roman style), and a not publically accessable second story, and removed adjunct Temple functions laterally to adjascent structures. Since sacred functions which were once in the First Temple and on the gounds were removed laterally, the Herodian additions are part of the Temple by sacred function, not by reason of the origin of the masonry or who or when they were constructed. Cohen warming hut, storage areas for vestments, wood and incense, treasury room, ambassadorial 'green room' for Gentiles wishing to pay hommage, etc. Again, what's your point, Dr.? Is that Dr. of divinity? That Jews don't worship in the right place?
