Mahomet is a descendant of Ishmael, at the most. Ishmael was never prophesied to accomplish anything.Christianity piggy backed on the the Jewish scriptures. How is that better than what Muslims did?
Jesus on the other hand could trace his descent back through Isaac and David and many notables.
He is the legitimate prophet, Mahomet the illegitimate one, who piggy backed onto Christianity.
Christianity had begun to be politicised long before then with competing bishoprics at loggerheads over the synthesis of the bible with Greek philosophy. Yet you have to realize that Greek philosophy was an external influence on Christianity and never changed the biblical message. There were always those who disagreed with the Constantine formulation, just as there are many who disagree with the Catholic church today.Christianity was politicised as soon as Constantine declared it the official religion of the Roman empire.
That's only because they inherited the lands of the Greeks that had been responsible for corrupting Christianity.Rather than being destroyers of ancient civilization Muslims actually saved and increased much of the wisdom of the Greeks that had been lost to Europe during the Dark Ages.

It's just that they have rather a grip on liberal thinking and certain american industries which makes them seem so very important. But in terms of religion, Judaism is irrelevant. There are however many Christian Jews today.I'm not sure Jews are as much concerned with the 'Trinity' as they are with Jesus being declared God. That was not one of their Messianic expectations.
