Furkan and 15 other US citizens were on board. Many were beaten and injured. Pathology Professor Ahmet Dogan is Ferkan's father. He seeks justice, saying :

"Furkan was an American citizen of Turkish origin, and the American government hasn't done anything for him."

"I want the United States to demand justice for its citizen, and support decisions related to this (injustice) at the UN."  

"We are very disappointed by the way the US has handled the events until now, because in theory the US is supposed to view all of its citizens equally."

"What if this was Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton's child? Would there be an American investigation into the matter?" 

"As far as they are concerned, their ties with Israel are more important than my son, and he was an American citizen." 

"If my son was an Israeli who was shot by Turks in international waters, how would the US react? That is what I would like to ask the Americans."

Dogan condemned Israel's internal investigation. It "was full of lies," he said. "It pandered to the Israeli and American publics."

Furkan just finished high school. He was "granted a place at the medical school of a prestigious university. Why was such a young, successful boy killed by Israeli soldiers in the middle of the night?"

"When he applied to go on the Mavi Marmara, he asked me for permission. It was a very difficult moment for me."

"But we let him go because he cared and wanted to help. He was a very moral boy. I think that no parent could say no to such a request."

"Besides".we did not expect Israelis to attack the ship".We thought (at worst they'd intern it at) Ashdod, and because my son was an American citizen and there is a close relationship between Israel and the US, they would not do anything to him."

"He had big plans. He was very ambitious"How would you feel if it happened to your son?"

Dogan "want(s) those responsible".to face justice." Nothing less is acceptable. So far it's been denied.
