A message posted on a jihadist messageboard in response to today's attacks in London and titled "Isn't Britain Responsible, of all the Countries, for the Fall of the Arab and Islamic World?" cites British colonization of the Middle East as justification for the attacks in London. According to the author of the message, the United Kingdom not only colonized the Middle East but also supported the creation of Israel, further implicating the country as a valid target for terrorism. The author finishes his analysis of British activity against Muslims by identifying "Anglo-Protestant" as a religion practiced by important American policy makers. According to the author, the "Anglo-Protestant" religion betrays British influence on American policies.
