America really didn’t need any more help sowing division, but the New York Times is stepping up and asking the question that no other sane person thought to ask: are Jared Kusner and Ivanka Trump good for the Jews?
The condensed version: if you’re Jewish and pro-Trump, you likely think they’re just fine, but if you’re anti-Trump, like the majority of the New York Times readership (and newsroom), then it becomes clear that Jared and Ivanka are bad for the Jews. What they’re supposed to do about that, we don’t know. Convert?
Following the Tree of Life massacre, there is deep division in the Jewish community about Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. https://t.co/GxEhkY094H

To some Jews, the couple serves as a bulwark pushing the Trump administration toward pro-Israel policies, most notably the decision to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. To many others, they are the wolves in sheep’s clothing, allowing Mr. Trump to brush aside criticism that his words have fueled the uptick in violent attacks against Jews.
“For Jews who are deeply opposed to Donald Trump and truly believe he is an anti-Semite, it’s deeply problematic that he’s got a Jewish son-in-law and daughter. How can that be?” said Dr. Jonathan D. Sarna, a professor of American Jewish history at Brandeis University.
If you’d like to hear from Jews who are deeply opposed to Donald Trump, there are plenty who follow the New York Times and commented on the piece. But we’re still asking: why did anyone think writing this was a good idea?

This is disgusting. Using a tragedy to make headlines? A very POOR headline at that… Shame on you https://t.co/Qu8TWz61Aj

FULL OF IT> Ninety percent of the world's anti-Semitism now comes from the left and radical Islam, not the right. But @nytimes lives in its own Upper West Side bubble. Liberals are the real reactionaries of our times. https://t.co/qymzaHoEA9

This is seriously disgusting….faith is not a club or the cool kids table where you can forbid people to sit….truly disgusting. How does this help America? How does this help Jewish people suffering from anti-semitism by people who have hated Jewish people for all time?

What a bigoted piece of garbage this article is. Imagine the outcry if there were an article titled “are the Obamas good for blacks”? More liberal fake news hypocrisy

What a fascist article. Not shocking such an unbelievably unintelligent article is written and published by the failing NYT and their idiotic employees. Now we are able to say if people can be a certain religion? Really? You morons.

Stay tuned to see who else’s faith is “deeply problematic.”
