"It will actually leave a very strong impression," Jean Charest told reporters, following his April 8 visit to Montreal's United Talmud Torah. "This sight and smell leaves a lasting impression of how violent a gesture this was." Firebombed early on the morning of April 5, the school reeked of burned children's books and plastic, making it nearly impossible to stay inside for more than a few minutes. A note left at the arson scene reportedly said the attack was in retribution for Israel's recent killing of Hamas leader Sheik Ahmed Yassin and was just a taste of things to come.
