But semantics is important, especially when it comes to architecture, art and history.

Anyway, it's ok.

I'm on my phone, when I get to a computer I can review the posts more closely. But some of the posts I saw were not appropriate for the Arch Forums, particularly from KWT. But anyways.. Back on topic!

To me it's clear that Al Aqsa mosque is an example of a "recycled" earlier building, perhaps a christian romanic church.

No its not. There were earlier buildings on the site of course, but they were destroyed by war and earthquakes. The last building before the mosque was a Byzantine church but it was burned down by the Persian Sassanids who were very aggressive and ruined many cities and buildings in the middle east. The current building was built during the Umayyad dynasty which was based in Damascus and had a very strong Byzantine architectural influence (look below). The Crusaders took over the mosque (after the Muslims built it) for a short while and turned it into a palace and church, but then the Arabs under Saladin took it back in 1187 and renovated it again.

Anyway most of the Arab world is centered around the Mediterranean as apposed to the rest of the Muslim world in the East which has more of an Asian/Persian influence.
