This is for the protesters in Cairo’s Tahrir Square.

This would probably have been more appropriate to post in honor of the Iranian protesters rather than the Egyptians, because the Sharif in this song is a religious theocrat like the Ayatollah Kahmenei rather than a secular autocrat like Mubarak, but it’s still about a country of Arabs rising up against oppression, so I think it’s a fitting tribute. Also, the video has an Muslim in a keffiyeh and a Hasidic Jew dancing together, which we could always use more of in the world. Also it’s an awesome song.
