There are a number of scholars who interpret Mohammedanism as a form of heretical Judaism... think of the similarities...

Quote
On 29 May 1453, The Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, Mehmet II, conquered Constantinople after a 54 day siege. He directly went to the ancient Byzantine cathedral of Hagia Sophia. When he saw a man hacking the stones of the church and saying that this was a temple for infidels, Mehmet II ordered the looting to be stopped and the church to be converted into a mosque.

Source

So Mehmet actually took pity on it.
