Does the Noble Quran in 17:104 say that the Jews will prevail in the State of Israel until the Day of Judgement?

Let us look at what Allah Almighty Said in the Noble Quran:

"So he (Pharaoh) resolved to remove them (the Jews) from the face of the earth:  But We did drown him and all who were with him.  And We said thereafter to the Children of Israel, 'Dwell securely in the land (of promise)': but when the second of the warnings came to pass, we gathered you together in a mingled crowed.  (The Noble Quran, 17:103-104)"

Allah Almighty in the Noble Quran gave the People of Israel two opportunities to elate with might on earth before the Noble Quran was revealed.  After the second time came, He the Almighty, sent to them enemies that poured destruction upon them:

"If ye did well, ye did well for yourselves; if ye did evil, (ye did it) against yourselves. So when the second of the warnings came to pass, (We permitted your enemies) to disfigure your faces, and to enter your Temple as they had entered it before, and to visit with destruction all that fell into their power.  (The Noble Quran, 17:7)"

"The second doom was due to the rejection of the Message of Jesus.  'To disfigure your faces' means to destroy any credit or power you may have got: the face shows the personality of the man.  Titus's destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.C. was complete.  He was a son of the Roman Emperor Vespasian, and at the date of the destruction of Jerusalem, had the title of Caesar as heir to the throne.  He ruled as Roman Emperor from 79 to 81 A.C.

Merivale in his Romans Under the Empire gives a graphic account of the siege and final destruction (ed. 1890, 7:221-255).  The population of Jerusalem was then 200,000.  According to the Latin historian Tacitus it was as much as 600,000.  There was a famine and there were massacres.  There was much fanaticism.  The judgement of Merivale is: 'They (the Jews) were judicially abandoned to their own passions and the punishment which naturally awaited them.' (7:221)."  (The Meaning of the Holy Qur'an). 

The punishment for the Jews has not ended.   Allah Almighty will continue punishing them for all the evil that they cause in life until they repent.  Notice that He, the Almighty, said: "but if ye revert (to your sins), We shall revert (to Our punishments).... (The Noble Quran, 17:8)This means that He, the Almighty, Would repeat history with them and cause them to face destructions again if they don't stop causing mischief and evil here on earth.
