Who is Deuteronomy 18:18 referring to?

Muslims often teach that Deuteronomy 18:18 points to Muhammad being that prophet.  Who is the "Prophet from among their brethren"?

"18 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."

Jesus fulfilled Deuteronomy 18 perfectly.  (1) He came from his Jewish brethren (Galatians 4:4).  (2) Deuteronomy 18:18 says, “He shall speak to them all that I [God] command Him.” Jesus said, “I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things” (John 8:28; cf. John 12:49).  Finally, (3) Jesus called himself a “prophet” (Luke 13:33) and the people considered him to be a prophet (Matthew 21:11; Luke 7:16; 24:19; John 4:19; 6:14; 7:40; 9:17).

Deuteronomy 18:18 clearly points to Jesus, acts 3 22 - 26 stimulates that this scripture points to Jesus, the following chapter 4: 2 declares that peter and the disciples were preaching to the people that  resurrection of the dead was through Jesus, not Mohammad.
