The Abrahamic Religions in politics

Your understanding of Christianity is what's laughable if you think that. While I was talking about the teachings of Christianity, I will humour you.

What evidence do you have that people looking to establish caliphates were based on Christianity? For starters, the Crusades happened for three main reasons; to reclaim the Holy Land which had been taken over by Muslims (who were making the lives of Christians hard there), the unprovovked attacks on the Christian Byzantine Empire by the Muslim Seljuq Empire (more on that here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byzantine–Seljuq_wars ) and a Pope's desire to expand an empire (while this reason is selfish - apart from how records don't say WHY said Pope supported expansionism, the other two still stand).

I don't know what you don't like about Abraham, but the claim that Jesus' death was a trick by God is from Islam, not Christianity.

Newsflash, religious people, including Christians like myself, can read books from other religions too (in my case, I've read the Qu'ran, a few sutras from Buddhism, a bit about Dianetics - that's from Scientology and I've even read the pro-atheism anti-religion books "The God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens book with the trolling title)

You make a good point. I'll leave it that way for ease of classification this time but address this in the future.

Since I meant globally, saying there are some peaceful Muslims does mean there are millions of peaceful Muslims across the world, which there thankfully are. The percentage of the Muslim population fits that criteria I cannot say, since I'm not God and cannot see into their hearts or minds.

The Israel/Palestine situation has blame on both sides, so I consider that point questionable.

Ultimately it comes down to the teachings of each of the religions. Islam has numerous deplorable teachings (a woman's word is worth half that of a man's in legal matters, inter-faith marriage for Muslim men but not Muslim women, beating a disobedient wife, Mutah contracts...) and Muhammad was a man with many problems and flaws and was also quite the repugnant person (funding Islam with military raids, his child bride Aisha, disowning his adopted son Zayd after said son divorced his wife so Muhammad could have her, claiming he had carte blanche from Allah to ignore the rules he said Allah gave for Muslims to live by...)
