Qur'an for 1 does not say "Jews are apes and pigs". it says that the Jews who broke the Sabbath were punished by God by turning them into "apes".

the verses clearly state that there were Jews that advised the Sabbath breakers not to do so. meaning: there re Jews who were doing the right thing and were trying to help others do the right thing, following their commandment.

you're confusing things and adding to the text what's not there.

as for the other part about the prophet pbuh. he was offered to be made leader of Meccans and money..etc if he stops inviting people to islam. he refused.

if you want more details or more questions answered you can drop by in the Quran room on
