I like the way the OP assumes that Islam and Jesus have no connection other than Jesus's prophecies.
Islam regard Jesus highly, he is one of their main prophets. However, they disagree on his life and teachings so they regard him differently.
And as for Islam being a violent religion? The Bible mentions God ordering the killing, enslaving, raping, eating and torturing of those who don't
believe in him.
The Crusades forced Christianity upon the world and killed, enslaved, raped, ate and tortured any who didn't renounce their faith and swear fealty to
That sounds pretty damn violent to me.
