Justice for Furkan Dogan
Three years ago this week, the Israeli navy intercepted in international waters a flotilla of ships attempting to deliver humanitarian goods to the Gaza Strip and to break Israel's illegal blockade.
Israeli commandoes stormed the ships and killed eight Turkish citizens and 18-year-old U.S. citizen Furkan Dogan aboard the Mavi Marmara.
But instead of investigating Furkan's killing and holding Israel accountable, the Obama administration engaged in diplomatic efforts to prevent fully independent, credible investigations into the attack and deferred to Israel’s investigation, which predictably exonerated all of the Israeli soldiers involved and failed to provide any details regarding Furkan's killing, according to documents obtained by the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.
Please take a minute to add your name to this petition calling on President Obama to investigate Furkan Dogan’s killing and hold Israel accountable.
