I found this fascinating comment at Haaretz online, under their article, Jewish extremism: How real is the threat?

To: Avraham Goldberg and all readers.

The Temple Mount is not holy to the Muslims. It is merely a trick in their battle to destroy the Jewish People.

The Dome of the Rock was built by Caliph Abd al-Malik in 687 as a gift to the Jewish People. Caliph built the Dome, as a place of prayer for the Jews till the Temple would be rebuilt.

It only became a Muslim ‘holy site’ in 1939 by order of the anti-Semitic Mufti of Jerusalem.

May G-D rebuild the Temple speedily in our days!

Update: I have been searching and searching the net…can’t find anything to back this claim. — Ellie
