The propaganda spectacle in Paris

Let us face it: (and according to Israeli newspaper, the French government knew it and warned the Israeli government in advance): the presence of Netanyahu in the forefront of the demonstration in Paris ruined what could have been a possibly useful propaganda spectacle for the French government.  For the image of France in the Arab and Muslim worlds, the damage couldn't have been worse.  The presence of Netanyahu created a link between the French government's stance and that of the Israeli government. This will only add to the already spreading kooky conspiracy theories which blame the Mossad or the French government for the attack.
