Isn't it, yerkyerk? Both Christianity and Islam grew out of Judaism and other beliefs in the same area of the world, so if Islam isn't then neither is Christianity. The some of the earliest Christians were Egyptians and the Coptic Church is probably the oldest Christian based religion in the world, despite what the Vatican would like you to believe. Really both religions are Middle Eastern in origin and the true Western religions would be those of the various Native American/South American peoples.

You can only be there for friends and family to support them as they make their own decisions for their own life. IF you feel they might be interested in what you have to say, then ask them first and if they say no don't take it any further. But if you feel they wouldn't then don't try and push them in the direction you'd like them to go. It's not your decision to make. It may be that it just isn't the right time and they may want to follow up later, but again that is their decision. You've offered, don't keep pressing the point. You might well ruin that friendship you are so eager to save.
