Like, duh.If the Jews had been turned into apes, it would have been recorded in the Jewish history.
The problem, YOUR problem, is that millions of your devout co-religionists believe that it was a literal transformation into apes of Jewish Sabbath Breakers, because that's what your Jew hating "prophet" said happened to them not once but thrice in his Mein Kampf, the Qur'an.
Sura 7:166, But when even after this they disdainfully persisted in that from which they were forbidden, We said to them, "Become apesdespised and disgraced!"
Sura 2:65, And you know well the story of those among you who broke Sabbath. We said to them: "Be apesdespised and hated by all." 66 Thus We made their end a warning to the people of their time and succeeding generation, and an admonition for God-fearing people.
5:60 Then say: "Should I inform you [People of the Book] of those, who will have even worse recompense from Allah than the transgressors? They are those whom Allah has cursed; who have been under His wrath; some of whom were turned into apes and swine; who worshipped taghut [the devil or idols]; those are the people who are in a far worse plight and who have turned farthest away from the Right Way."
Guess what? Jewish historians are accused by Muslims of CORRUPTING not only their sacred texts, but also their history!
