Seriously, what even are Judeo-Christian values, and why don't they include Islam?

Can anyone actually explain what Judeo-Christian values really are? Conservative political pundits like Ben Shaprio, Dave Rubin, and Jordan Peterson will mention these but they never really seem to explain or list specifically what they are.
Even more intriguingly, and explanation always seems to deliberately exclude Islam. Why should we not consider these same values, whatever they are, to be nearly the same values as those held by many Muslims? Are there any of these supposed Judeo-Christian values which are not also held by Muslims?
Some have argued that these values are the foundation of Western thought passed down from the Hebrews to the Greeks and Romans, then preserved in Europe. This however is ignorant of the golden age of Islam, when many of the basic scientific, mathematical, astrological, medical, and economic concepts that were foundational to modern science were founded.
It seems to me that we ought to include Muslims into these values if indeed they are not different, and consider them Judeo-Christian-Muslim values.
At some point in the distant past, the universe went through a phase of cosmic inflation,
Stars formed, planets coalesced, and on at least one of them life took root.
Through a long process of evolution this life developed into the human race.
Humans conquered fire, built complex societies and advanced technology .
All of that so we can argue about nothing.
