Yes, I think there are lots of illogical claims in christianity. I don't believe that Jesu ...[text shortened]... ill him legally.
That's why if I have no choice but to choose, I will choose christian.
Me As a muslim belive as you belive that Jesus is human, we belive that he is a prophet of GOD, and muslims should belive in that to be muslims. We should belive in prophets sent from GOD. That is the first point. Actually we belive in Christianity and Judaism too because they are actually the same religon because there is only one GOD and we all worship him.
Prophet mohammed come people were away from that.
For example christianity as you said moved to belive that Jesus is the son of GOD and make him another GOD.
And many other people has different GODs so ISLAM comes to return people to the only religon of GOD.
So the only problem is to belive the Prophet mohammed is messanger from GOD. And he come with the same religon you belive in. He said that there is only one GOD that deserve to be worshiped.
Then if you belive in that. He asked muslims to spread this message to every one.
Besides Islam gives a guid to human life that reguilate everything in your life that make the human being happy.
Islam tell you how to live how to buy how to sell how to eat and how to drink and even how to get married. Every thing in your life.
Besides the Islamic system guarantee that there will be no poor people and every one in the community will find a place to live and to something to eat.
Islam is complete system but the problem is you see it from only one point of view.
The problem today that islamic countries are week and poor that they don't have the power to show you Islam. Although when people see the real islam away from the media they join it.
You see from islam that there is Jihad in Islam and it shouldn't but In christianity Jihad also exists and even worse but it has a different name. You say Juses didn't say that but he did and your Holy book did say several times.
The Christian Jihad made a lot of wars in midle east for many centiries and a lot of Muslims died because of it. Don't tell me that is not true because the Cross was the sign of this wars. The history remembers only mulsims and forgit the others.
I hope you understand what I want to say because my English my be not that Good
