Arson Attempts at Montreal Kosher Restaurants not Hate

The police investigation into recent arson attempts at kosher restaurants in Montreal indicate they were carried out by two men in their twenties and motivated by business competition, not by anti-Semitism, according to a Wednesday report by the Shalom Toronto Website.

The appraisal vindicates the earlier stance by the Jewish Federation in Canada not to immediately call it a hate crime.
