Short answer: yes, probably. Long answer: no, but there are a hell of a lot of them. In this episode I look at 7 key figures in the history of Al Muhajiroun since its founding in 1996, all of whom are probably or definitely informants for MI5. From the top of the gang’s hierarchy – Abu Hamza, Abu Qatada and Omar Bakri – to deep cover agents like Reda Hassaine and ‘Omar Nasiri’, the organisation has been riddled with spies since its inception. This show also touches upon the ‘shoe bomber’ and the Woolwich murder and explains the possible reasons for why this mass infiltration has happened.
