    Does the Bible state that Mt. Moriah is in Jerusalem? How did the Samaritans come to understand Mt. Gerezim as the site of the Temple? Whne did Jerusaslem take precedence over Sechem? or some other cultic center? Jerusalem was always, in Muslim tradition, understood to be the "farthest" place (al aqsa) from which Muhammad ascended and where his horse Buraq, was tethered. There is a whole Islamic literature that was written about Jerusalem and its holiness. Schools and pilgrim inns were established there. If one could not make haj to Mecca, one could visit Jeerusalem, so enough of this propaganda that it means more to Jews than to Muslims who are just hyping this to get at the Jews. The site has been, according to the status quo of holy places, a Muslim holy place. That is its legal status and Jews have not contested that until recently in these current attempts to lay claim to it and build there a synagogue. Jews are allowed but not to declare it their spot and throw off the Muslims.
