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.
