Moustapha Akkad dies in terrorist bombing

You knows his name from the opening credits of every movie from the Halloween series. Beside producing every Halloween movie he produced and directed two movies about Islam, that I heard on the news, stressed that Islam is a religion the originates in Christianity and Judaism. Even on Fox News the commentator mentioned that this is unfortunately something most people refuse to learn.

The following text from this
AP article about Akkad's death in Jordan.

Moustapha Akkad, the Syrian-born producer of the "Halloween" horror films, died Friday from wounds sustained in the triple hotel bombings, a hospital official said.

Akkad's daughter, Rima Akkad Monla, 34, also died in one of Wednesday's three explosions, her mother Patricia Akkad, said Thursday.

Very grim news. Rest In Peace.

I was going to write a piece about how everyone from Democratic candidates, to Michael Moore, to Bush, to liberal Hollywood filmmakers, find opportunistic ways to demonize Arabs and Moslems, but that will wait.

Al Qaeda is responsible for the bombings. Shouldn't the U.S. have wiped them out a long time ago? I guess we were busy doing something else.

Wow, I didn't know about this. RIP Akkad.
