You say

The prophet has to be a Jew.

which commandment is that?11th.

Islam has an ecumenical vision and it says that every nation has been sent messengers so that truth has been given to every nation. it's not just the jews that were sent prophets and messengers. the God is the god of all creation (rab al-alameen) not just the God of jews.

issac and ishmael (PBUBOT) were sons of Abraham (PBUH), so when the bible says that among the brethren of jews, it means the descendents of ishamael. the jews were getting their messengers and prophets after Moses (PBUH) so it doesn't make sense to tell them that they will get another prophet unless that prophet is sent to another nation!

and how is Jesus (PBUH) like Moses?

did Jesus lead a nation? No, but Moses did, so did Muhammad(PBUH).

did Jesus married and had children? No, but Moses did, so did Muhammad.

did Jesus brough the law? No, but Moses did, so did Muhammad. infact Jesus said he has come to confirm the law.

did Jesus have a human father? No, but Moses had, so did Muhammad.
