Religious Zionists legitimizing not Islamists, but a false god and prophet?

Reader comment on item: Can the Koran Solve Israel's Political Impasse?

Submitted by Peter (United States), Apr 23, 2021 at 12:16

If there's a problem for Religious Zionists in legitimizing Islamists, surely there would be a much larger philosophical problem in implicitly endorsing or legitimizing the Koran? Does Judaism recognize Mohammed as a true prophet (or a false one), and does Judaism recognize the Koran as the word of the true God (or a false one)? What does the Religious Zionist Party think about Deuteronomy 13:1-3?

"If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you... and if he says, 'Let us go after other gods,' which you have not known, 'and let us serve them,' you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams. For the LORD your God is testing you, to know whether you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul."
