The insertion of the Arabic text has screwed up the first line, especially the date of birth/death. Can someone fix it? thanks

Akkad was best known for his key involvement in the first eight Halloween movies, as an executive producer (the only producer to participate in all of these films), Akkad also later owned the long-running franchise that spawned seven further variations on the original theme (the most recent being Halloween: Resurrection in 2002).

  Not true. Part III was not a Michael Myers story.

(peace be upon him)[edit]

Does this article really need to praise Muhammad in order to give a comprehensive biography of Akkad?—Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.205.215.34 (talkcontribs)

No, of course not. Good you noticed, it's gone now.--Húsönd 01:06, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

traveled to USA at the age of 5  ???[edit]

According to this sentence: In 1935, his father, then a customs officer, gave him $200 and a copy of the Quran before he left for the United States to study film direction. How can this be possible ?? --Ezzex (talk) 01:35, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Provoking[edit]

I find the sentence "Though he dedicated much of his career to explaining Islam to the West, ironically he was killed in 2005 in Amman, Jordan by an Al-Qaeda in Iraq suicide bomber." is very provking as it links clearly between Isalm and that group, unless you consider that he made a film about Bin Ladin or he praised Al Qaida in his film. For God sake, he made a movie about a religioun came to world 1400 years ago, not about people who have a new political or whatever theory grown up by US interests. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.208.82.97 (talk) 15:13, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
