Surah 2:285 (Yusuf Ali Translation)
The Messenger believeth in what hath been revealed to him from his Lord, as do the men of faith. Each one (of them) believeth in Allah, His angels, His books, and His messengers. "We make no distinction (they say) between one and another of His messengers." And they say: "We hear, and we obey: (We seek) Thy forgiveness, our Lord, and to Thee is the end of all journeys.

This is what I have found to be the most troubling thing about ignorance (no jibe at you, either, just a point in general). Have you even looked into what Islam says about Jesus? Do you know? Or are you just going on against it because it is the 'enemy' or the 'other'?
No, I'm aware they see Jesus as a good guy and inspired Prophet. As NWO rightfully said, Islam has a more pleasant view of Jesus than most non-Christian Westerners.
Islam doesn't deny that a crucifixion took place. Islam doesn't even deny that the crucifixion of Jesus was attempted. What islam says is that God put their schemes to nothing, and saved Jesus from being killed on the cross by replacing him with (what is traditionally considered to be) Judas.
Alright, but that goes against what we know about recorded history. I disagree with the quoted section in the O.P. where it says Christians are wrong in that Jesus was crucified. Again, how does someone who came along centuries later know more than the original eye witnesses, Gospel writers, and secular historians?
Considering that Jesus is an islamic figure just as much as he is a Christian figure, I don't see how it is an insult in the slightest. They want to make a movie about him, as they see him.
I'm not sitting over here crying about it but it is an insult due to the fact to deny Jesus' crucifixion, ignore the records, and flat out say we're wrong is basically saying they know what is going on better than those who were closer to the events than they were.

Well, if you take an overall look at the three Abrahamic religions, they have indeed had negative impact on society.

That you're getting upset that your records might not be 100% true, or that you're in denial? Also, what you're saying if the Christian records are correct then all other records are false?
What if the Christian records are false, and all the other records are correct? One thing for sure, you can't prove neither of them, and you shouldn't be insulted in any way.
In Islam, Jesus (Arabic: عيسى, commonly transliterated as Isa) is considered one of God's most beloved and important prophets, a bringer of divine scripture, a worker of miracles, and the Messiah. However, Muslims do not share the Christian belief in the crucifixion or divinity of Jesus. Muslims believe that Jesus' crucifixion was a divine illusion and that he ascended bodily to heaven.
Most Muslims also believe that he will return to the earth in the company of the Mahdi once the earth has become full of sin and injustice at the time of the arrival of Islam's Antichrist-like Dajjal."
