Sahih International

Indeed, those who conceal what We sent down of clear proofs and guidance after We made it clear for the people in the Scripture - those are cursed by Allah and cursed by those who curse, 2:159

Among the Jews are those who distort words from their [proper] usages and say, "We hear and disobey" and "Hear but be not heard" and "Ra'ina," twisting their tongues and defaming the religion. And if they had said [instead], "We hear and obey" and "Wait for us [to understand]," it would have been better for them and more suitable. But Allah has cursed them for their disbelief, so they believe not, except for a few. 4:46

Originally posted by Abu Loren is crystal clear from the Holy Qur'an that the Jews are cursed in this life and the next and the Christians are astray from the Straight Path.

In the 7th century Muslims thought that the Jews were cursed, therefore we can read about this in the Qur'an. There is also the comparison with apes and swines. Fortunately, many Muslims today think differently today and reject anti-semitism. We need the historical context to understand holy texts.

And to answer the general question: Yes, Islam owes Judaism a great deal. Christianity also owes Judaism a great deal. There are numerous examples of Jewish thinking which found its way into other religions.

Asalam Alykum,
Jews, as we call them now were indeed once the followers of prophets of God like Moses or David or Noah. But when they rejected God and reject prophet Jesus(pbuh) the Messiah, they separated themselves from God due to their rejection to accept Essa-Ibn-Mariam (Jesus). So, due to their trespasses and rejections God cursed them, except those who repented and accepted what God revealed to the prophet. Similarly those (who call thenselves Christians) who elevated Jesus's status from a servant and beloved messenger of God to God, or those who said God has begotten a son (Jesus) only incurred God's wrath upon themselves, unless they repent from their blasphemy.
That is the truth, and for a believer there is no confusion.
I would suggest you read the Quran translation in a language you understand well on a regular basis. There are all the answers in there.
39:64 Proclaim: Is it some one other than God that you order me to worship, O you ignorant ones?"
