The answer is no.
The Muslims built their mosques on top of Jewish religious sites...and Christian.
Destroy the evidence of the original owners.
At least the Jews allow all three religions to flourish. The Muslims? Not in a million years.
Based on that reality, alone, even if the Muslims were first, I'd support the Jews.
And Christians and Jews built their houses of worship on Pagan sites
What's your point

I can pose a scripture for you. Old Testament.
"Now the Lord had said to Abraham: Get out of your country, your father’s house, To a land (Israel) that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed". (Jesus will rule out of Jerusalem)

My question is has there ever been an actual independent Palestinian government that ruled over all of Jerusalem?
The Twelve Spies (Hebrew: שנים עשר המרגלים), as recorded in the Book of Numbers, were a group of Israelite chieftains, one from each of the Twelve Tribes, who were dispatched by Moses to scout out the Land of Canaan for 40 days as a future home for the Israelite people, during the time when the Israelites were in the wilderness following their Exodus from Ancient Egypt. The account is found in Numbers 13:1-33.
God had promised Abraham that there would be a Promised Land for the nations to come out of his son, Isaac. The land of Canaan which the spies were to explore was the same Promised Land. Moses asked for an assessment of the geographical features of the land, the strength and numbers of the population, the agricultural potential and actual performance of the land, civic organization (whether their cities were like camps or strongholds), and forestry conditions. He also asked them to be positive in their outlook and to return with samples of local produce.
When ten of the twelve spies showed little faith in the doom and gloom report they gave about the land, they were slandering what they believed God had promised them. They did not believe that God could help them, and the people as a whole were persuaded that it was not possible to take the land. As a result, the entire nation was made to wander in the desert for 40 years, until almost the entire generation of men had died. Joshua and Caleb were the two spies who brought back a good report and believed that God would help them succeed. They were the only men from their generation permitted to go into the Promised Land after the time of wandering.
Sumerian god, Anu, the “supreme Lord of the Sky”, the currently reigning titular head of the Sumerian Family Tree, had two sons. They were Enki (Ea), Lord of the Earth and Waters (whose mother was Antu), and Enlil (Ilu),
Lord of the Air and Lord of the Command.
I never really understood why Palestine has a claim over east Jerusalem or all of Jerusalem.
Ancient Jerusalem was part of the land of a people called the Canaanites. IT WAS NOT ALWAYS IN THE POSSEION OF JEWS! The Israelis under David conquered the city and stole it from the Canaanites. Then the Jewish religion didn’t even exist at that time.
Palestinian was well organized before the Illegal Aliens stole their land!!!!

Talmudic Sources Saying that Jews Are Forbidden to Return from Exile on Their Own and Create a State
Tractate Kesubos 111a
The Biblical book Song of Songs says: “I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles or the deer of the field, not to arouse or awaken the love before it is desired.” This oath occurs three times in the Song of Songs (2:7, 3:5 and 8:4). The Talmud interprets this metaphorical language to mean as follows: the speaker here is G-d, and the “daughters of Jerusalem” are the Jewish people and the nations of the world. During the Jewish exile, which began with the destruction of the Temple in the year 69 CE, G-d placed three oaths upon the world, two upon the Jewish people and one upon the nations. The Jewish people were foresworn not to immigrate as a wall (i.e. en masse) to the Holy Land, and not to rebel against the other nations. The nations were foresworn not to afflict the Jews too much.
