A car set ablaze in an act of vandalism early Wednesday morning was that of Nasser Abu-Taha, Israel's first Bedouin district judge in Be'er Sheva. The car was set alight just outside his home leading to an official investigation by police, though motives for the crime remain unknown.
"This is a sensitive investigation," said a police spokesperson. "The motive is still unclear. The judge himself doesn't know if the incident has any connection to his work. No one has made any threats against him and he hasn't received any messages or anything of the sort that express any intention to harm him."
