Just because you steal land and ethnically cleans the indigenous population by means of terrorism and wanton violence doesn't give you the right to be deemed a "state" on par with all other nations.
Also, this article shows that Netanyahu was warned that passengers might fight back — something he otherwise denied (claiming the Zionists were caught by surprise).
If he is so stupid as to be surprised by people defending themselves after having been warned (I'm saddened by the counter-violence but certainly wouldn't have dropped soldiers on board firing on their way down thinking it might not happen), then he has no business being a dog catcher (many of them have more brains and compassion), let alone a national leader.
