"By right, the origin of Muslims is Hagar and Abraham and the origin of Jews (which is where Christians came about) is Abraham as well (but with Sarah) so therefore Christians, Jews and Muslims should be nice brothers. Instead there is a war."

The reason there is war is that though most religions are meant for the afterlife They exist and compete here. Each claiming to be the one true religion does but give cause for conflict. It does not matter that they share bonds in there existance. For we all do somewhere, all you have to do is go back far enough into time to find some connection. The second Mohammed who is the main profet of Islam(I think) decided he's belief should demand dues from all other non-believers in he's religion he decided there would be eternal conflict between he's followers and those of christ/Abraham/Boedha/etc...

Chirst didn't demand for such conflict as he didn't claim there should be actions set up against those who do not agree with he's belief. Just those who attack he's belief and even then in a non harmfull manner(do not KILL) There for not going down the path of conflict with others.(war, murder, etc..)

So, yes. The religions you mention can't be "nice brothers" as there founding "leaders/profets" had differend views. Jews and christians share more then just the founding source of there religion and there for have more grounds on which they could be living peacfully to gether.

"And, Muslims worship the same God as Christians as they worship the God of Abraham as Christians do. The only difference is that Christians recognize Jesus as the Messiah. Muslims do not, they recognize him as a prophet. For Muslims and Jews, the Messiah is yet to come."

Your claiming :Jewish God = Muslims God = Christian God?

Sorry, I can't agree with you on this. The characteristics each religion "gives" there god is significantly differend. You can't claim that a god is Good and forgiving to all and at the same time claim he's just for your followers and a wrathful destroyer god to other religions. Or one of the prophets (Messiah) is wrong about the alleged 1 God making that 1 of these religions is a false one. And their Prophet/Messiah is a liar.

...So, NO, can't compare Muslim belief and there God to be the same God as those of Jews or christians.

At least 1 of the 3 should be an idol or false God for that matter. Or you can consider the founders of the belief at wrong then there is one and the same God. If there profets/Messiah are wrong. And the scriptures there followers are using to guide ther belief and actions are also wrong. For they do not describe the same God personality. Then you logicly have to accept at least 1 belief has been founded by "wrong" person(s).

"Please correct me if I am wrong."

I hope I did by this and also hope you'll read and react to my response.
