I've been seeing a bunch of articles in Arabic about how the Quran predicted the defeat of the Jews and are trying to shoehorn it into what is happening in Gaza today.

They all seem to quote Quran chapter 17, verses 4-8:

4. And We conveyed to the Children of Israel in the Scripture: You will commit evil on earth twice, and you will rise to a great height.

5. When the first of the two promises came true, We sent against you servants of Ours, possessing great might, and they ransacked your homes. It was a promise fulfilled.

6. Then We gave you back your turn against them, and supplied you with wealth and children, and made you more numerous.

7. If you work righteousness, you work righteousness for yourselves; and if you commit evil, you do so against yourselves. Then, when the second promise comes true, they will make your faces filled with sorrow, and enter the Temple as they entered it the first time, and utterly destroy all that falls into their power.

8. Perhaps your Lord will have mercy on you. But if you revert, We will revert. We have made Hell a prison for the disbelievers.
As this article on Gulf365 says:

Most scholars believed that the first corruption of the Children of Israel passed and ended a long time ago, and that the second corruption is what we are experiencing now with the Zionist occupation of the lands of Palestine and the corruption and destruction of the crops and offspring associated with it, and that the Muslims are the ones who will disgrace the faces of the Jews, and will enter Al-Aqsa Mosque as they entered it the first time. 

Most scholars held that the second corruption of the Children of Israel is the Jews’ current occupation of the land of Palestine and their corruption therein, and Sheikh Metwally Al-Shaarawi followed this opinion in his interpretation, as he affirmed that the second corruption of the Children of Israel is “what we are dealing with now, where the Jews will gather in one homeland to fulfill the promise so Allah may eliminate them... This is what is meant by the Almighty’s saying: “When the promise of the Hereafter comes, We will bring you in a group” [Al-Isra: 104], meaning: gathering some of you together from various countries, and this is what is happening now on the land of Palestine.
I don't pretend to be a Quranic scholar, but the verse clearly refers to the Temple - even though the Arabic word is Masjid, it clearly refers to the Jewish Temple because that symbolized the Jewish people's first defeat. And this is the chapter of the Quran that refers to Mohammed's "night journey" allegedly to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, so both the Quran and the modern scholars quoted clearly consider the mosque on the Temple Mount to be the same as the Jewish Temple - which Palestinians strenuously deny.

Nice to know that they know the truth about who really was in Jerusalem first. 

(It may be worth researching further the apparent use of plural to refer to Allah in these verses. Maybe Islam isn't as monotheistic as is claimed. But that is a separate issue.)
