As usual, STRATFOR gets it right.

“It was not the truth or falsehood of the narrative that mattered. What mattered was the ability to identify the victim and victimizer such that global opinion caused both London and governments not directly involved in the issue to adopt political stances advantageous to the Zionists.”

It’s not about, “whose logic is correct. But the issue actually is, whose logic will be heard?”
