Likud MK Abraham Naguise, the only Ethiopian legislator in the Knesset attended the anti-racist protest in Jerusalem on Thursday and said he would work to solve the issue of police violence at the highest levels of government.
"There is justifiable anger about police violence against the Ethiopians in particular, and Israeli civilians in general," he said.
"I will take care of the issue in order to solve the problem from the root, going to the highest levels, including the prime minister. The protest was entirely legitimate, and was carried out exclusively within the law and without any violence. Violence is not our way, and is contrary to the Ethiopian heritage," the lawmaker said.
