Muhammad in Bible: Prophet like unto Moses - Deuteronomy 18:18

prophet like unto moses

Muhammad was 95% similar to Moses. Jesus was 5%. Who did God most likely raise up in Deuteronomy 18:18?

The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;
DEUTERONOMY 18:15
I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him
DEUTERONOMY 18:18
For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you
ACTS 3:22
Jews, Christians and Muslims disagree over who these Bible verses apply to. The words 'Like Unto Thee' imply the future prophet would be 'like' Moses.

Arguments

CHRISTIANITY | "Brethren" Refers to Jews

First, given the context of Deuteronomy 18, the term "brethren" is referring to their fellow Israelites. Deuteronomy 18:2, says "They shall have no inheritance among their brethren." Also, elsewhere in the book of Deuteronomy the term "brethren" refers to fellow Israelites (Deuteronomy 17:15). Since the term "brethren" refers to Israelites, why would God raise up a prophet from the enemies of Israel, the Arabs?
ISLAM | "Brethren" Refers to Arabs

Abraham had two sons, Ishmael and Isaac (Genesis 21). Ishmael became the grandfather of the Arab nation, and Isaac became the grandfather of the Jewish nation. The prophet spoken of was not to come from among the Jews themselves, but from among their brothers, i.e. the Ishmaelites. Muhammad , a descendant of Ishmael, is indeed this prophet.

Also, Isaiah 42:1-13 speaks of the servant of God, His "chosen one" and "messenger" who will bring down a law. "He will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth. In his law the islands will put their hope." (Isaiah 42:4). Verse 11, connects that awaited one with the descendants of Kedar. Who is Kedar? According to Genesis 25:13, Kedar was the second son of Ishmael, the ancestor of the Prophet Muhammad.
2. Muhammad from Ishmael

Second, Muhammad came from Ishmael, as Muslims admit, but heirs to the Jewish throne came from Isaac. The Torah states, "My covenant I will establish with Isaac," (Genesis 17:21). Later, God repeats the same message, "In Isaac your seed shall be called," (Genesis 21:12).
