Moustapha Akkad

(July 1, 1930 – November 11, 2005)

It's been a very long time indeed to have gone without posting here as my other site keeps me well busy. You have my apologies, so without any further delay we'll get started straight away. The origins of this investigation started when I was watching a documentary on the making of the film "John Carpenter's Halloween" (that is the true title although people have shortened it to just 'Halloween'). I've always found this film intriguing, and have a great respect for the severely underrated film director John Carpenter. Carpenter has produced many films of note that disclose and portray things not often portrayed in film, especially today. Escape from New York, Assault on Precinct 13, The Thing and They Live are all considered classics now, that impart a grounded atmosphere and introduce anti-heroes that have magnificent resonance. It was during the documentary that it was revealed that the producer of the Halloween films was none other Moustapha Akkad. Akkad was a proud Muslim and was murdered along with his daughter Rima Akkad Monia in a terrorist's bombing at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Amman, Jordan. Knowing what I know about black ops, false flags and the lot, I found this particular incident suspicious and highly unusual. One because the grand majority of terrorist acts are actually black op false-flag attacks engineered by the Mossad, CIA, MI6, or a combined effort of all three by proxy using pseudo-gangs such as Al Qaida or the Taliban. The Raymond Davis affair particularly reveals this type of operation in full glaring detail. So I did some investigation into Akkad and the terror bombing in Amman and this is what I uncovered.

Akkad was a Syrian-American film producer and director born in Aleppo, Syria July 1, 1930. After Syrian independence from the French colonial rule in 1946, he pursued his dream of film direction through studies at the American Aleppo College. He wanted to go to the US to accomplish his goal in Hollywood, but prospects were dim. However, through the assistance of his American theatre arts teacher Douglas Hill, he was able to get accepted into the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). In 1954, when Akkad was 18, he arrived at the airport to leave. My father said goodbye and put $200 in one pocket and a copy of the Koran in the second pocket, saying "That's all I can give you." He attended UCLA for four years and graduated in 1958. Shortly after, he interned under the American director Sam Peckinpah whilst studying for his Master's degree at the University of Southern California (USC). Los Angeles director Sam Peckinpah contacted Akkad whilst searching for an Arab speaking consultant while developing a film on the Algerian revolution for independence. Unfortunately, when the Algerian Revolution ended, the film was subsequently dropped, but the bond between Akkad and Peckinpah remained.

After graduating USC, Akkad accepted Peckinpah’s invitation to work with him as a production assistant at MGM studios on the movie "Ride the High Country". Akkad later moved on to the CBS News Department and, with Peckinpah’s encouragement, produced his own show entitled “As Others See Us”, which examined the different ethnic groups in the States and how their backgrounds affect their lives in America. Following this success, he then formed Akkad International Productions, specialising in documentaries as well as features. The success of one of these early documentaries, "Caesar’s World", broadcast across the United States, allowed him to open offices for his film company in Beirut, London, and Hollywood. Hosted by actor Cesar Romero, the show would visit different locales around the world and offer insight to its people’s culture and history. Akkad then embarked on an extensive jet-bound campaign to raise financing for the 1976 film, “The Message”, telling the world for the first time in international feature film proportions, the story of the beginnings of Islam. In the film The Message, Akkad proudly sought to create an atmosphere of understanding between Islam and the West (a progression diametrically opposite to the goals of Zionism). Due to the sensitive nature of the subject matter, and the importance of the spoken language of the Quran, Akkad made movie history by simultaneously filming his epic in two languages, English and Arabic, with two completely different sets of actors. This effort was just another example of his dedication to the integrity and accuracy of the films. Akkad stated in an interview, “I did the film because it is a personal thing for me. Besides its production values as a film, it has its story, its intrigue, its drama. Beside all this I think there was something personal, being Muslim myself who lived in the West I felt that it was my obligation my duty to tell the truth about Islam. It is a religion that has a 700 million following, yet it's so little known about it which surprised me. I thought I should tell the story that will bring this bridge, this gap to the West.”

Akkad went on to form Falcon International Productions, and to fully finance and distribute “John Carpenter's Halloween”, a modest-budget spine-chiller, written and directed by John Carpenter. Carpenter, an aspiring young filmmaker, and producer Irwin Yablans, set out to make a low budget, horror movie about babysitters being stalked and killed on Halloween. They approached Moustapha Akkad for project support and financing. After speaking with Carpenter, and hearing his ideas and passion for the project, Akkad agreed to finance and produce the film. Eventually, John Carpenter's Halloween went on to break all box-office records for an independently produced and distributed film. After the success of Halloween, Akkad set his sights on another epic story of resistance. His next film, “Lion of the Desert”, would see him reunited with Anthony Quinn in the title role. Quinn would play Omar al-Mukhtar, an Arab Muslim teacher who rises up against fascist Italy’s invasion of Libya. Akkad kept producing films in the Halloween series and other in the horror genre, but they were clearly meant to be financial vehicles to fund his true passion, which was to produce films on Islam and heroic Semitic Arab heroes. Former Jordanian Prime Minister Tahir Masry who was a friend, commented "He (Akkad) had a good sense of what he wanted to do," Masry said. "He wanted to establish an Arab cinema production company to make big productions about Arab history and historical figures." This is very important to note, as if you reflect upon the current agit-prop demonisation of Islam, Muslims and people's of Semitic (Arabic) descent you can clearly see how this would conflict with Zionist machinations. The denigration and defamation of Arabic peoples has always been the focal point and primary goal of post-Israel Zionism. One only need examine Hollywood television and film productions from that period to today to corroborate this statement. In today's Hollywood, Akkad's positive films on Islam and it's heroes would NEVER see the light of day, much less gain funding, the resources to produce it and the associated distribution. The forces of strategically infiltrated Zionist interests have established an infrastructure in place that only reflects media that advance their agenda.

Akkad had a studio at Twickenham in Great Britain and he tried to buy famed Pinewood Studios from the Rank Organisation. In 2001, he began preparations for his third epic entitled "Saladin", a high-budget Hollywood production with Sean Connery cast in the role of the Muslim sultan. Akkad lacked the funding for the project, so he toured the Arab world from 2003 to 2005 seeking support for his Saladin project. The film, which was to cost $80 million and to be filmed in Jordan, was described by Akkad shortly before his death: "Saladin exactly portrays Islam. Right now, Islam is portrayed as a terrorist religion. Because of a few terrorists are Muslims, the whole religion has that image. If there ever was a religious war full of terror, it was the Crusades. But you can’t blame Christianity because of a few adventurers did this. That’s my message."

Moustapha Akkad was known to be a very intelligent man, keen to the ways of the world and the inner workings of his profession. In an interview conducted at his Century City, Los Angeles office, March 26, 2002, Akkad boldly laid bare Zionism's power in Hollywood and the world. "The media runs the world. Absolutely. No tanks or planes. The media and the public companies. This is what The Protocols of [the Learned Elders of] Zion [is all about]. The Zionists, last century, were persecuted in Europe. So they immigrated to the United States. They had a target. They were united. And they did not permit [statements] critical of Zion. They went all the way to control the world and to control the minds of the people through the media. There's a lesson to learn from them. They have control of the media here. We know it. They did not do it through tanks or machine guns. They planned of course. They united." Akkad asserted. He continued… "There is a red line if I get into the issue of Israel but the Jews, like everyone else, wants to make money…". The interviewer Luke Ford then states, "But movie and TV producers are 70% Jewish."; and Akkad replies: "Yes. The studios are. That control is financial but not the creative aspect. You can't be more Jewish than Miramax [owned by Disney and operated by Bob and Harvey Weinstein, distributed last two Halloween films]. They financed me and I did it. But probably if I did something about Israel, they would not. So I get financing from overseas, such as when I did The Message."

On November 9, 2005, 3 separate terrorist bombings simultaneously attacked the Radisson SAS, Days Inn and Grand Hyatt hotels in Amman Jordan. The combined casualties numbered at 60 dead and 115 injured, the original figures were 67 dead and over 300 injured, but the figures were inexplicably revised by the Jordanian government. Among the casualties was Moustapha Akkad and his daughter Rima Akkad Monia, Rima was killed immediately and Moustapha was critically injured and died on November 11th. The suicide bombings were quickly attributed to 4 individuals who spoke "Iraqi-accented Arabic", and were affiliated with the Abu Mus’ab Al-Zarqawi‘s Al-Qaida group in Iraq. In the post-911 false-flag rampant world, this is what I refer to as red flag number one. The pattern is now all too familiar, the horrific terrorist attack, followed by the all-too convenient blame the intel-connected patsy pseudo-gang. Who just so happens to belong to whatever nation the Triad of Hell (Israel/US/UK) happens to be targeting for their resources or strategic military value at the moment. I think the attacks on 9/11 and 7/7 proved this beyond a reasonable doubt now and anyone who still believes otherwise either has interests and benefits with our covert enemy, was just born, cognitively dissonant or is cognitively retarded. In the face of such massive amounts of detailed information and evidence, there can be no other conclusion.

When one reviews Moustapha Akkad's life, knowledge and works, he was a threat. Definitely to the Zionists in particular, but also to the Triad of Hell, who were seeking to incite hatred and enmity against Muslims, Islam and Semitic peoples. You simply cannot tolerate any influence counter to this agenda and Akkad had in his heart and mind to decimate these negative Arab stereotypes and educate the world to the realities of Islam, Muslims and Arabic citizens. His projected film 'Saladin', in which a courageous leader fights off a military crusade was just a little too close to current affairs. Its potential impact and influence contrary to the virulent state and media generated propaganda geared towards turning minds to hatred, intolerance and war for "freedom". It is completely within the realm of possibility that Akkad at the Grand Hyatt was a target of opportunity. The main targets were Major-General Bashir Nafeh, the head of Palestinian military intelligence in the West Bank, Colonel Abed Allun, a high-ranking Palestinian Preventive Security forces official, Jihad Fatouh, the commercial attaché at the Palestinian Embassy in Cairo, and Mosab Khorma, a senior Palestinian-American banker and former Paltel CEO. This is red flag number two, as it is now well-documented that the Mossad regularly targets high-profile Palestinians for assassination abroad. Also killed during the terror bombing at the Grand Hyatt were three Chinese delegates of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) who may have met with the Palestinian officials. Their deaths prompted a dispatch of an investigating 'working group', composed of officials from the Ministry of National Defense and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs from China. A bit much for seemingly innocuous delegates visiting in Jordan don't you think? In later mainstream media reports, the Chinese delegates were changed, and referred to simply as 'Chinese students'.

Amongst all this unusual and suspicious evidence is the biggest red flag of them all and one that now showcases a familiar pattern with these terrorist attack cases. Wait for it… On the 10th of November, the Los Angeles Times used this quote in an article: "The Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz reported that Israelis staying at the Radisson on Wednesday had been evacuated before the attacks and escorted back home "apparently due to a specific security threat." Amos N. Guiora, a former senior Israeli counter-terrorism official, said in a phone interview with The L.A. Times that sources in Israel had also told him about the pre-attack evacuations. "It means there was excellent intelligence that this thing was going to happen," said Guiora, a former leader of the Israel Defense Forces who now heads the Institute for Global Security Law and Policy at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. "The question that needs to be answered is why weren't the Jordanians working at the hotel similarly removed?" If Israelis were warned and evacuated at the Radisson prior to the attack, then you can best bank on the fact that they were also at the Day's Inn and Grand Hyatt. The story originally printed in Ha'aretz ran: ''Scores Dead in Three Amman Hotel Bombings; Israelis Evacuated Before Attack" - By Yoav Stern and Zohar Blumenkrantz." Also, the attacks were categorised as suicide bombings, however Jordanian police sources told Reuters that they were bombs previously planted. In the case of the Radisson, police stated that it was a bomb planted in a false ceiling.


  1. Hi HHQ,
    Great to see you back here, and haven't you been very busy!!! what awesome research my friend!!you have covered this one excellently.
    There are so many of these kinds of demises, and so many sheeple don't see any connection, that when you present something like this , it makes total sence.
    keep up the inspiration and Good work.
    Cheers A13

  2. Suraci, I mentioned to HHQ that I'd read your whole Suspicious Deaths blog in one sitting a while ago. He reminded me it was a collaborative effort, so here's giving credit where credit is due. Educational, intriguing. Excellent work, thanks. I feel like a glutton for soaking up all of the amazing research and analysis of you rare group of dedicated authors/bloggers.

  3. A13, thanks kindly for your gracious comments. It's just good old-fashioned detective work plain and simple.

    Anonymous, thanks for setting that right and much gratitude for your compliment.

    Cheers and respect to you both.

  4. HI Guys, on the subject of John Carpenter, he did a movie in the 80's called "starman" and it was quite a beautiful and interesting movie.
    I really impressed me..
    Cheers A13

  5. Carpenter is/was a clever visionary, not afraid to walk his own path regardless of consequences. His stories are powerful because they reflect that innate anti-hero in all of us, that directly challenges the status quo. His introspections into the human condition and evil drive people to think about both existentially.

  6. I believe that your work is very well done and I want to provide you with positive reinforcement for what you've done. Many of us who research these issues, and others, are doing a thankless task. You're doing a great job and you work at a pace which doesn't burn you out. BTW, I'd recommend that you consider archiving your work with each update and potentially put up a bittorrent for it. If the net is taken down then your info will potentially be backed up and spread across the world!

    Highest regards!

  7. Cheers for that friend, it's a bit less thankless due to your comment. Great idea on the bittorrent, I'll look into that as soon as possible. Judging from witnessing the new standard procedure of internet take-downs in Egypt and Libya, one can best expect the same tactic to be used in the Western world where the idea originated. Better to be forewarned and properly prepared for every negative contingency.

    Respect back to you.


  8. I'm another fan of the work you're doing here.

    Your selections are of international interest, which is great, I think.

    Occasionally, I look into the deaths of relatively unknown people. I published one on the supposed suicidal leap of a Prof. Roweis.

    btw, it's an interesting group of people who I see posting and commenting on a few sites, but I haven't quite figured out who's who yet! A13, Hei Hu Quan, Suraci, and perhaps more. If people used real names, it'd be helpful toward increasingly credibility and reducing confusion. My position is that the enemy can find out who we are any time they want, so why not just be brave and straight with the people we're trying to reach.

  9. Good post HHQ, Carpenter was definitely trying to do his bit for truth. That's why, of course, he's not recognised in the say way as, say, Spielberg.

    Starman was poignant, and They Live is just naked truth hidden as fiction.

    Events have taken me away from posting here but I'll stick in a few when I can.

    Cheers all.

  10. Thanks James, as Suraci will corroborate, there are hundreds of cases of these types to sort through. For me it takes quite a bit of work running down leads, and researching undiscovered info. There's definitely a pattern to these crimes, and that pattern has been kill the messenger and make it look like a suicide, an accident, tragic disease or "random" violence. Then sell it through the propaganda news agencies large as life and repeated ad infinitum.

    As for the different investigative journalist's names, I don't mind anyone's nom de guerre of choice. It's the content they produce and their convictions that matter to me. Just because the enemy has the means to track you down, doesn't mean you make it easy for them. Let them earn their pay using the over-glorified technology we've paid for. Also, who's to say that the they haven't been led up a garden path when they finally suss an identity?

  11. Suraci, good to see you about again. Your posts here are well needed to keep things in motion.

  12. Thank you, HHQ. Yes, I understand your points.

    Also, after I'd hit the "post comment" button, I remembered that in different countries there are different levels of danger of arrest, etc., for saying what we say.

    And openness may vary based on the different roles we have taken upon ourselves.

    High regards.

  13. Cheers James, no worries friend.


  14. If you do consider the bittorrent issue, here is what I would recommend to help with making clear the sort of steps needed.

    1) Use a utlity to archive and compress your website files (you can use something like wget to get all the files, then use a RAR or ZIP archiver to compress the files)

    2) use a bittorrent client to share your archive of the site (something like Utorrent)

    3) enable "forced" encryption in the BT client to give some privacy.

    4) post a .torrent file to piratebay or another public torrent tracker (

    5) make sure to post many accurate keywords in the torrent file to help increase hits (list the names of all the people you've covered, plus all other relevant topics (jews, satanism,etc))

    6) With each update to your site, you can just "append" that data to your archive, and then post an updated torrent.

    You may not need any help distinguishing the things that would be required, but I'd rather give you these basics and you not need them, than not give them to you when knowing them could facilitate things, if you decide that it's worth it.

    There was a superb site which disappeared about 2 years ago by a guy named Brent or Jessie. The site was a treasure trove. He had citations from Bertrand Russell's Science and It's impact upon society (dark work). I managed to scavenge some of the articles through the cahce, but a lot of his work was lost (still no clue what happened to the guy, he may have been whacked or threatened because of the impact of the literature he posted at his site on the scientific global dictatorship which is being installed) and I don't like seeing that happen.

    Just a heads up, I will probably archive this site myself as soon as I get the chance.


  15. Much appreciated Anonymous and sincere apologies for the very late posting of your comment. It appears that it was in the spam section all the while and I don't normally look there. As Penny from Penny for your Thoughts will attest, sometimes Blogger censors some replies by relegating them to the Spam section. It's happened to me on her site numerous times.

    Cheers for the information, and I will try and form a plan of action towards your suggestions. Please feel free to beat me to it and archive it as you offered.

    Thanks much.

  16. "Another of those strange symbols"

    Suraci, posting this here since comments are closed in "Truth.."

    - The symbol you've mentioned is called the "Star of Life" created in 1973 by one Leo R. Schwartz, and is common here in the US.

    The symbol on the star is the "Staff of Moses", and various mythologies have been attributed to it, such as "..the Israelites’ camp was swarmed by venomous snakes . . . they bit the people and many people died. So Moses prayed for the people. Then the Lord told Moses to make a bronze snake and put it up on a pole; anyone who was bitten could look up at it and live" -and- "Moses' rod in God's hand called down plagues on their enemies and led them to the Promised Land"

    It resembles the more commonly used "Caduceus"
    Wikipedia - "..initial errors leading to its adoption and the continuing confusion it generates are well known to medical historians. The long-standing and abundantly attested historical associations of the caduceus with commerce, theft, deception, and death are considered by many to be inappropriate in a symbol used by those engaged in the healing arts. This has occasioned significant criticism of the use of the caduceus in a medical context"

    Perhaps your musings were of a rhetorical nature, meant to pique the curiosity of a common "fork and spoon operator" such as myself. It's not the first time I've embarked on an Easter egg hunt after reading one of your posts.

    If so, it worked. The symbolism hidden in plain sight is astonishing, and growing ever more undeniable, what with the wars we and others continue to wage on various tribal holidays and such.

    Thanks Suraci - and HHQ - I'm awaiting a copy of “The Message”. I saw Starman and They Live when they premired, both definately worth revisiting.

  17. Long live Akkad .....a legendary film maker and a true visionary
