Blurred Vision sees straighter than the Ayatollah
Iran is being held hostage and kept from contributing to the world’s need for solutions by a legacy of religious backwardness and hostile leadership. A nation that for 2,700 years led the world in new ideas, advancing engineering, design, and construction fell on hard times because it placed an anchor on its minds and prevented the natural advance of its peoples’ intellect.
It may appear trite, but I appreciate the message from the Iranian Rock Group, Blurred Vision.
The youth of Iran will one day overthrow their backward leaders, for their own sake.
“Iranian Rockers Tear Down 'The Wall'

A Toronto-based rock band is garnering worldwide attention after remaking Pink Floyd's "The Wall," into a new anthem -- "Hey, Ayatollah, leave those kids alone!" -- as a sign of solidarity with Iranians fighting against Tehran's regime.
Blurred Vision, formed in 2007 by brothers Sepp, 28, and Sohl, 35, who fled Iran with their family in 1986, was inspired to cover the classic tune after watching protests in Iran unfold over the controversial reelection of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
"We did a show in Toronto in September and while we were performing we decided let's play 'Another Brick in the Wall' just for the hell of it and as the chorus line came up I just decided to sing 'hey Ayatollah' instead of 'hey teacher' and when I sang that line the crowd went insane," Sepp told FoxNews.com.”
