Hey Ayatollah, Leave Those Kids Alone!

07/31/2010

From Telegraph via Gateway Pundit:

The 1979 song, which was released in the same year as the Islamic Revolution, has been reworked by two exiled Iranian brothers.

Roger Waters, a founding member of Pink Floyd, gave the rights to Blurred Vision, a duo living in Canada, to remake the classic under the title Another Brick in the Wall (Hey Ayatollah, Leave Those Kids Alone).

The video, which features images of Ayatollah Khamenei and footage of street violence following Iran’s disputed elections last year, has become a YouTube sensation, attracting more than 100,000 hits.

It has been made by Sepp, 28, and Sohl, 35, who do not reveal their surname for fear of putting the lives of family members in Iran at danger.

The brothers hope that the song’s “anti-authoritarian message” will highlight to the world the suffering of many people in Iran.

The song is available for download on iTunes with proceeds going to Amnesty International.
