Okay, let's zoom in on the Western Wall. The Song of Songs had a sentence that the rabbis in the Talmud said meant that the Western Wall would never be destroyed. Then the Jews were kicked out of Israel by the Romans.
Who are the participants?
From about the year 70 C.E. the Jews lost control of Israel. They were evicted by the Romans and the Romans took control. They destroyed most of the Temple but for some reason left the Western Wall standing. Then about a thosand years later the Muslims took control. They had 1,000 years to destroy the Western Wall but didn't.
How did they participate?
The Jews were out of the picture for 2,000 years during which the participants were the Romans and the Muslims, both mortal enemies of the Jews. They, not the Jews, left the Western Wall standing.
Now, I ask you, why would the enemies of the Jews, those who said the Jewish books were lying, allow this wall to stand that actually make a Jewish prophecy come true?
I would say that it would have been in their interest to knock down the wall to prove the prophecy false. I think in all likelihood they didn't read the Talmud and didn't know about this prophecy. Still the question is why would they destroy all the other walls but leave this one standing? You must admit this is very odd.
Clearly the Jews had absolutely no control over the actions of the Romans and the Muslims. So your comment that "the participants" made this prophecy come true on purpose does not seem possible. Rather this is either an amazing coincidence or a sign that the rabbis had access to information about the future (which I think is quite possible).
