A prophet killed ants in genocidal rage

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 536:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle said, “Once while a prophet amongst the prophets was taking a rest underneath a tree, an ant bit him. He, therefore, ordered that his luggage be taken away from underneath that tree and then ordered that the dwelling place of the ants should be set on fire. Allah sent him a revelation:– “Wouldn’t it have been sufficient to burn a single ant? (that bit you): (See Page 162, chapter No. 153).

1) Why did this prophet decide to kill the ants in genocidal rage?
a) Who was this prophet?
b) Where did Mohammad learn of this story as it is not mentioned anywhere in the Jewish Torah
i) If this Mohammad’s Allah was the same God as the Jews, and the Jews faithfully kept all their writings, wouldn’t one conclude that the Jewish Torah and Mohammad’s stories be identical?
ii) Why is the Jewish Torah discouraged from being read?
iii) Is it to ensure that Muslims dont see how ridiculous Mohammad’s stories are compared to other religious texts preceding his supposed divine revelation (which he received while sleeping with Aisha? http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/04/mohammed-would-get-divine-inspiration.html

2) Did this prophet expect the ants to recognize him as a prophet the same way ants recognized King Soloman, according to Mohammad’s quran?

Quran: 027.018 YUSUFALI:
At length, when they came to a (lowly) valley of ants, one of the ants said: “O ye ants, get into your habitations, lest Solomon and his hosts crush you (under foot) without knowing it.”
(*** No story like this exists in the Jewish Torah – Mohammad’s source for the story regarding ants and King Soloman is very suspect***)

3) This prophet’s actions were so cruel that he was even questioned by Allah:
a) Was this story used as a justification to allow Mohammad to kill the Qurayza Jews in genocidal rage?
