1. Is Jerusalem post a conservative or liberal paper?

2. Center right, I think

Haaretz is more liberal.

3. Formerly regarded as left-wing, the paper underwent a noticeable shift to the right in the late 80's

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Jerusalem_Post

From 2011, editor Steve Linde professed to provide balanced coverage of the news along with views from across the political spectrum. In April 2016, Linde stepped down as editor-in-chief and was replaced by Yaakov Katz, a former military reporter for the paper who previously served as an adviser to right-wing Education and Diaspora Affairs Minister Naftali Bennett.

7. The JP seems neutral in the last several weeks.

I reluctantly started reading them after the Israeli election and was pleasantly surprised. (Their info was up to the minute and that was why I started reading them)

They didn't seem to be fawning all over Bibi or anything and were critical enough of him. If I hadn't heard they were right wing previously, I would have never known. It didn't seem much different than Haaretz.

11. Interesting! Thank you

The posted article seemed very even-handed. Almost like an outsider writing a diplomatic summary for government back home.

Kushner is where he is, Israel need not worry.
