In a shocking video (watch below), a group of Texas kids was captured singing that they are the “followers” and “soldiers” of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
“We are your followers, we are your soldiers and together we can all be your power,” the children sang during a recent celebration of the 40th anniversary of the 1979 Iranian Revolution.
The event took place in the Islamic Education Center of Houston, a Shiite mosque in Texas.
MEMRI translated the video that was posted on the Islamic Center’s YouTube Channel. The video in question starts with 10th-grader Morteza Kazemian speaking about sanctions on Iran and how, despite the sanctions, the country is still a success.
The more disturbing part, however, shows a group of kids younger than Kazemian. In the video, the group sings about Khamenei and refers to themselves as his “soldiers.”
Khamenei is the leader of the world’s number one state sponsor of terrorism. For children in America to be signing his praises and referring to themselves as his soldiers is alarming to say the least.
The Islamic Revolution in 1979 in Iran overthrew the shah and put into power Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, a radical Islamist cleric. After Khomeini’s death, he was replaced by Iran’s current leader, Ali Khamenei.
