I mentioned an alarming trend some time ago. Looks like things are accelerating:

MONTREAL – A small explosion outside a Jewish community
centre is sending a chill through Passover celebrations in the city by recalling
the dramatic firebombing of a Jewish school three years ago.

Workers at the Ben Weider Jewish Community Centre
in Montreal's west end reported hearing an explosion late Tuesday

"A homemade bomb exploded and there was a small
fire," said police spokesperson Lynne Labelle.

The crude device resulted in no injuries and what
little damage it caused was washed away by today's rain, she said.

But with the explosion coming right in the middle
of Passover week and two days before the third anniversary of the firebombing of
the United Talmud Torahs elementary school library, many in the Jewish community are concerned.
