"Jerusalem simply never held any sanctity for the muslims themselves, but only for the Jews in their domain. It can be seen that significant Islamic interest in the Temple Mount does not precede the Six-Day War." Not sure what you've been reading mate. But if you look at an independent source like Wikipedia (not infallible, but better than what you've been reading) you'll see that the Temple Mount has probably been holy to Muslims from the start. Early Muslims prayed to it, before switching to Mecca. And by the 9th century at the latest Al Aqsa was regarded as the second mosque built, Mecca being the first. It makes sense, of course. Islam is ultimately derived from Judaism and Christianity, so, of course, Muslims are going to revere the Temple Mount and the mosque on it.
