The Tribulation will begin when the Antichrist signs a seven-year covenant with Israel (Dan 9 v.27). He will not fully honor that covenant but will break it in the middle of the 7 years. Daniel's Visions
"He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week" (seven years - each day is one year). This important phrase indicates that the event that starts the 70th week (the seven year tribulation) is the signing of a seven year Covenant between the Antichrist and Israel. Daniel's 70th Week It is certain that the signing of the covenant begins the period called the Tribulation.
At the halfway point of the Tribulation which is three and a half years, the Antichrist will break this covenant with Israel with an event called "The Abomination of Desolation." Abomination of Desolation This also signals there is only three and a half more years remaining before Christ returns to earth to set up His Earthly Kingdom. Christ's Earthly Kingdom
One Provision of that Covenant Between the Antichrist and Israel might permit the Jews to Rebuild Their Temple which must be rebuilt in Jerusalem as the unbelieving Jews will once again resume their sacrifices. Temple
To get the Muslims to move from their Dome of the Rock, the Antichrist might negotiate an agreement between Israel and the Remnants of the Arab world to relocate them to other countries thus giving them the opportunity to build their Temple. However this is done, it will happen as Israel will once again have a temple in the end times.
Since the antichrist will come on the world scene after the strength of Russia and her Arab allies has been broken, (Gog and Magog) he could talk the Muslim survivors into moving their sacred mosque somewhere else.
