French spies were so fed up with Britain harbouring terrorists that they hatched a plot to assassinate Abu Hamza on a London street, it was claimed last night.

Security officials were intending to kill the hook-handed cleric with a rifle while posing as members of the extremist group Combat 18.

The far-Right organisation would then have been left to take the blame for his death.
The French intelligence service, Direction Générale de la Sécurité Extérieure (DGSE), also hatched a separate plot to kidnap Hamza from outside his west London home and bundle him on a ferry to France.

They were concerned Algerian terrorists were planning an attack on the 1998 football World Cup and wanted to remove the hate preacher from circulation.

His ranting sermons outside the Finsbury Park mosque in north London were considered an inspiration to Algerian fanatics. The capital became known as ‘Londonistan’ – with French officials concerned the UK police and security services were not doing enough to combat Islamist extremism.

The claims are made by the HOPE not Hate anti-extremist think-tank and campaign group in a report on banned terror group al-Muhajiroun, which had strong ties to Hamza.
The report’s author, Nick Lowles, writes: ‘One plot hatched by French intelligence that has, until now, not previously come to light, was the idea of assassinating Abu Hamza in London.

‘The plan was to impersonate the British Nazi group Combat 18 and then allow them to take the blame.

‘In the immediate aftermath of the London nail-bombings, the French considered sending death threats in the style of C18 and then killing him with the same type of weaponry that the group was thought to possess.

'However, as with the kidnap plan, the assassination attempt was aborted and it is unclear how advanced the planning of either idea progressed.’

This information apparently comes from the far-left "antiracist" outfit Hope not Hate. As such, it should be taken with a pinch, if not handful, of salt, but I'm not sure what their angle on this would be.
