Do Christians understand the false deity of Egypt was killed on Passover and its blood applied on the door posts?

Exodus 8:26
But Moses said, “It is not right [or even possible] to do that, for we will sacrifice to the LORD our God what is repulsive and unacceptable to the Egyptians [that is, animals that the Egyptians consider sacred]. If we sacrifice what is repulsive and unacceptable to the Egyptians, will they not riot and stone us?

"Ham settled Africa with his sons. Mizraim founded Egypt and Cush founded Nubia,
which at one time extended to the boarder of Egypt all the way to Ethiopia.
It is logical to look for Ham in the midst of his children.
The city of Elephantine, which became the capital of southern dynasties, was right
on the boarder of Egypt and Nubia.
Secular historians tell us that in the Third dynasty Elephantine was called Abu.
The chief god worshipped there was Chnum (sic), the Ram headed god.
Egyptians said he was the creator of other Egyptian gods including
Menes (Mizraim), who founded the first Egyptian dynasty.

Chnum could be Ham, deified and worshipped.
...close to the Hebrew name for Ham, being Cham.

It is possible that Ham may still have been alive
when Abraham visited Egypt."- "Ancient Post-Flood History"

take it or leave it as may be done

sounds Kosher :)

after killing the Egyptian and that
Moses went south to Elephantine
was a warrior and a ruler there
before going to Midian for a while
and then later sent back to confront the Pharoah at Memphis (where He was raised)

This is nonsense...just saying.

Do the Jews now claim that the blood of an Egyptian false deity protected them from the Destroyer?

Why did you add those words? It doesn't add much to your argument, when you have to correct what the scripture says for the sake of your argument.

There are Scriptural clues that the Egyptians objected to Hebrew slaves sacrificing lambs, but I have never found a reference suggesting that lambs were either sacred or taboo to the Egyptians.

The Passover liturgy says God executed judgment upon the Egyptians' gods; the Egyptian deities are not specified but I assume the Nile, bulls, and sunlight were among them.

I don't think they claim the blood directly protected them, like an amulet or whatever.

The purpose of the blood was to mark the homes of the true believers (those who obeyed without questioning or overthinking). They were spared because they obeyed, not because they had some magic blood smeared on their doors.

According to Exodus 12:23, the "Destroyer" was an agent of God and needed God's permission before he could kill anyone.

When the Lord goes through the land to strike down the Egyptians, he will see the blood on the top and sides of the doorframe and will pass over that doorway, and he will not permit the destroyer to enter your houses and strike you down. (Exodus 12:23)
