ERBIL, Kurdistan Region- Several teachers and civil servants were reportedly executed in Mosul for refusing to implement the Islamic State (ISIS) curriculum in schools, a local official told Rudaw on Monday.

“For refusing to follow the ISIS curriculum in schools which contains extremism ideology and encourages violence, the group executed several teachers and civil servants in Nineveh ,” Ghazwan Dawdi, a member of Nineveh provincial council told Rudaw.

Early in October and the start of the new school year extremists in Mosul changed the curriculum to focus more on teaching jihad and ISIS history.

A source inside Mosul said that the 'terrorists' were imposing a new system in elementary, high school and universities on levels of education.

The group is also printing new textbooks, the source added.

Armed battles are the short term tactics. Swaying the minds of the next generation is long term. ISIS knows it must instigate social rebirth. But it chooses to do so with publicized death. Perhaps a contradiction that will not go unnoticed by the curious students. Terror enforced short cuts are often weak and unstable.

If this is not what the Mosul people wanted, they should never have supported ISIS when they entered Mosul in June 2014 with only 200 Isis terrorists and 2 million Mosul population.

To all the people complaining that Muslims aren't standing up to extremists... look no further than this article.
