Do muslims and Christians worship the same God?

After some unfortunate events at Wheaton College, there have been a several online posts regarding the question whether muslims and Christians worship the same God. I haven't been following the events or the arguments too closely, but here's what Calvin said, around 500 years ago.
So today the Turks (that is, muslims), although they proclaim at the top of their lungs that the Creator of heaven and earth is God, still, while repudiating Christ, substitute an idol in place of the true God.
  -- Calvin, Institutes, II. vi. section 4
