My God - Muhammad's God, Elohim and Allah

When Israeli and Islamic leaders negotiate they say " we all believe the same God ".
Since when do we?
We never did. However, let's compare Judaism to Islam.
Treatment to infidels:
Judaism - has to be accepted, and equall by law. They have freedom in whatever they do, but, they has to respect the Jews.
Islam - Death.
Drinking:
Judaism - OK, however you has to limit yourself that you won't get drunk.
Islam - prohibited.
Women:
Judaism - Women are sacred to the man. They are not a tool, and the man has and the women has to love each other, if not they're not allowed to marry.
Islam - They're sex slave.
Laws:
Judaism - a Jew should do Gods will, however, he has to choose to Good, and it's his free choice if he chooses the bad ( Social commandments ).
Islam - Allah decides, and the Muslim has to blindly obey, without any rejection, In Arabic, Islam means, obeidence.
Democracy and religion:
Judaism - all are equall within the same law, even the King. It's the People's duty to rise up if the King is unfair to them. The Sanhedrin is able to block the King. Judaism has Democratic elements, the Massiah should also have the acceptance of the people.
Islam - Tyranny. All Freedom is by the Caliph's hand.

When I look at it, I see the opposite things.
My God, Elohim, Hadonay, Hashem, isn't Allah.
My God commands me to be moral, Muhammad's god commands him to enslave everyone near him.
I don't think we believe the same God.
My God would punish people who commit suicide in order to kill others. My God will punish Baruch Goldstein for his crimes, as he will Yigal Amir " Thou shalln't kill ", and they didn't obey this.
However, terrorists did obey Muhammad when he commands to kill, kill, and kill.
Those aren't the same Gods, Or, maybe they are the exact opposites....

I think this is a reflection of how badly Islam needs its "renaissance" - don't you?
