(1) if expects the name of the property, not the dereferenced value,
you are checking the properties true and false - both do not exist, so
no target will be executed.

(2) if/unless tests for the existence of a property, not for its
value. In your case, both properties are set and consequently both
targets will be executed if you remove the ${} dereference.
