Jews have nothing to worry about in the New York Times

Jack Shafer in Slate wants to know why Judaism isn’t more respected in the New York Times.

Please, the Times couldn’t be friendlier to the Jewish religion and its moral blind spot over Israel:

One would think that Jews, toughened by 4,000 years of hardship, would get a little more respect for their tenacity from the New York Times. Yet time and again the newspaper goes popeyed whenever it finds members of the tribe living outside the five boroughs and environs, Los Angeles, Miami, Philadelphia, and Chicago.
