Dear Prime Minister Erdogan,
We Thank You for Taking a Stand for Justice. As American citizens we send our deepest apologies that our government has not been more forthcoming in condemning the actions of the Israeli government in killing nine innocent civilians aboard the Mavi Marmara.
We were horrified by the assault and murders and support your efforts to take this to the International Criminal Court. Please know there are many people around the world who appreciate your gesture to hold Israel accountable and break the siege of Gaza. We are delighted that you have made a commitment to go to Gaza and are encouraging our elected officials to do the same.
