It's good that we can just blame Muslim violence on Jews or Zionists...

Muhammad himself was reported to be violent against critics. Zionist plot?

It will require a little wisdom to acknowledge this tolerance and respect by Muslims towards the holy figures of Jews of Christians, in contrast to how some Jews and some Christians treat the prophet of Muslims.
It's a completely different situation.

Think of Christianity. They will not attack Judaism's prophets, because of course the Old Testament, as Christians call it, is also a part of the Christian religion. So attacking it would make no sense... It would be attacking your own religion.

But from the Jewish perspective, Christians don't really follow the Torah etc. Rather, the Christians have hijacked and misused Jewish scripture in fabricating their own religion.

Jews *have to* object to this, as the validity of their own religion is at stake. Of course some Jews will be more polite about it. And some will be more willing to make strong attacks against Jesus and the early Christians.

So that's a similar situation with Islam. Of course Muslims aren't going to attack Jesus. Or if they did, it would be inconsistent with their own religion. On the other hand, Christians have to reject Muhammad because the validity of the Christian religion is at stake.

It's not "tolerance" that Muslims will be respectful of Jesus. From a Christian perspective, it could easily be seen that the Islamic religion has hijacked and misused Jesus etc for its own reasons. It's a way of pretending to have ancient roots when you are trying to fabricate a new religion.

Anyway, I'm sure we can find many cases of Islam/Muslims not being very tolerant of Jews and Christians, regardless of it being "tolerant" of Jewish and Christian prophets.

So going by your logic, the Jews are rebellious branch of the group that followed Abraham. And the followers of Abraham are a rebellious branch the group that followed Noah? And hence the followers of Noah should attack Abraham, and the followers of Abraham should attack Moses. I mean seriously... your logic has no class. Disgraceful and disrespectful.
