Skip to comments.Syrian Muslims infected with Kuru, a disease of cannibals

Youve heard of Mad Cow Disease, the scientific name of which is bovine spongiform encephalopathy a type of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs).
TSE is an incurable fatal disease that affects the brain and nervous system of many animals, including humans. Autopsies of infected brain tissue show a myriad of tiny holes in the cortex, giving it a sponge-like appearance hence spongiform. (See below)
spongy TSE-infected brain tissueThe disorder causes impairment of brain and bodily functions, including memory changes, personality changes, and problems with movement (shaking, trembling) that worsen over time.
Like all TSEs, the bovine variant is transmitted via prions (a type of protein) instead of via bacteria or viruses. The prions come from the tissue of a TSE-infected cow which was ingested by another cow. The corporate meat industry actually mix cow tissue in the food thats fed to cows. Yuck!
When humans eat TSE-infected beef, they develop a type of TSE called CreutzfeldtJakob Disease.
But there is another form of human TSE called Kuru that is caused by humans ingesting TSE-infected human tissue. In other words, Kuru is the result of cannibalism.
Kuru was first identified in 1961 among the Fore tribe in Papua New Guinea. Research suggested that the epidemic may have originated around 1900 from a single individual who lived on the edge of Fore territory and who is thought to have spontaneously developed some form of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. From that infected individual, Kuru spread easily and rapidly in the Fore people due to their endocannibalistic funeral practices, in which relatives consumed the bodies of their dead, especially the brain tissue where prions are concentrated, to return the life force of the deceased to the hamlet. By the mid-1960s, Kuru was in decline among the Fore due to Australian colonial law forbidding cannibalism, as well as the efforts of local Christian missionaries. But cases continued to appear for several more decades because the mean incubation (asymptomatic) phase of the disease is 14 years after initial exposure, although cases were reported with latencies of 40 years or more. The clinical (symptomatic) phase of the disease lasts an average of 12 months, before the infected person dies.
The last sufferer in Papua New Guinea died in 2005. Little did the world know that Kuru would make its reappearance thousands of miles from Papua New Guinea among Muslim rebels in civil war-torn Syria.
In April of this year, Time magazine obtained a video that had been smuggled out of Syria by a rebel fighter. Aryn Baker writes for Time magazine, May 12, 2013:
In the video a man who is believed to be a rebel commander named Khalid al-Hamad, who goes by the nom de guerre Abu Sakkar, bends over the government soldier, knife in hand. With his right hand he moves what appears to be the dead mans heart onto a flat piece of wood or metal lying across the body. With his left hand he pulls what appears to be a lung across the open cavity in the mans chest. According to two of Abu Sakkars fellow rebels, who said they were present at the scene, Abu Sakkar had cut the organs out of the mans body. The man believed to be Abu Sakkar then works his knife through the flesh of the dead mans torso before he stands to face the camera, holding an organ in each hand. I swear we will eat from your hearts and livers, you dogs of Bashar, he says, referring to supporters of Syrian President Bashar Assad. Off camera, a small crowd can be heard calling out Allahu akbar God is great. Then the man raises one of the bloodied organs to his lips and starts to tear off a chunk with his teeth.
Two TIME reporters first saw the video in April in the presence of several of Abu Sakkars fighters and supporters, including his brother. They all said the video was authentic. We later obtained a copy. [...] These 27 seconds of footage provide a glimpse at how brutal the Syrian war has become .
Walid Theodore Shoebat, a former member of the radical Muslim Brotherhood but now a truth-telling peace activist, writes in his blog that Kuru has been found in 8 to 20 people in war-torn Syria, and the only way it could have come about, doctors confirmed, is through cannibalism and the consumption of human brain,as first reported by Arabian news source Zaman al-Wasal and substantiated by Orient News Television.
Two of the infected were sent from Syria to a hospital in Ghazi Antab in Turkey for further examination, then transferred to another hospital in Germany. One of the two was confirmed to have eaten human flesh, and he eventually died.
Shoebat has written extensively on Islamic cannibalism, which can be found here, here, here, and here.
The asymptomatic incubation phase of Kuru is between 5 to 20 years following initial exposure, with the average being 12 years. But the Syrian civil war began in 2011. This suggests that the Kuru of the infected Syrian men would have been transmitted BEFORE the civil war.
Such is the Religion of Peace!
Now Christians and Jews have to be concerned with suffering a gruesome death and then be eaten....hopefully after we've been murdered. Nice cozy religion that is bound to reduce any crisis concerning the food supply.
Perhaps the ones in the White Hut are dining on cadavers and are all sick from something. Who, besides Obamazombies would ever sit down in the WH to eat a meal there?
A Muslim chef would be cooking it.. makes you wonder why Michele has her own chief now, maybe she knows something we do not know..
Need stronger glasses. Thought it said “disease of cannabis”.
God works in mysterious (or maybe not so mysterious) ways....
I consider this to be perfect justice in its way.
The stricter the adherent, the loonier.
Great, they are dying from inbreeding AND cannibalism.
Alla hoo....Yummy! Ow!! Ow!!!! They’re eating my brain! Make it stop!!!!! (not a dramatization...probably happened)
Not to worry...maybe the syrian moozlum loonies can get coverage under nobamacare?
Oh, no they’re eating my toe. Oh, me the zombies are eating my knee.
Just imagine the gleeful games the White Hut attendees wearing Kenyan Mau Mau garb can plan while eating body parts of a live victim.
Barry gets the gonads.
Smoking weed won’t stop it — they’ll just be even crazier than they are now.
And you will contract kuru.
Wait until our state department hears of this malady. They’ll be importing Syrian cannibals by the millions just to make our lives more interesting.
Thank of running down Madison Avenue at night with twenty or thirty Obamazombies chasing you trailing blood flowing from their fanged mouths. What fun! What inspiration for murder story writers.
I see a whole new era of excitement in store for Americans. With this cannibal thing we won’t have to worry about Lucifercare. We’ll all die anyway.
Ha! Couldn’t happen to more deserving individuals.
Naturally, the UN will fund an expensive program to find a cure for this disease, & US taxpayers will pay for it.
"By the mid-1960s, Kuru was in decline among the Fore due to Australian colonial law forbidding cannibalism, as well as the efforts of local Christian missionaries."
Western Civilization has defeated many, many, many other evils as well!
Western Civilization, Colonialism and Christianity did some bad things. They have also done some very, very, very good things. In balance, the good FAR outweighs the bad.
Not also that the absence of Western Colonialism and Christianity has allowed a recrudescence of kuru in Syria. This is no accident.
>>>Wait until our state department hears of this malady. Theyll be importing Syrian cannibals by the millions just to make our lives more interesting.<<<
Kuru must be covered by Obamacare.
There would have to be cannibalism on both sides, and it would have too have been practiced for decades. Also, you would have to eat brains, not just heart and liver.
Muslims have contributed greatly to the world through many ingenious inventions and discoveries.
We have the sayings of that marvelous philosophizer Omar Kayam who wrote with such eloquence about harem adventures and other stuff.
Then we have.............
Well, nevertheless we owe an intenerate herdsman whose discovery hundreds of years ago gave us the condom.
He ingeniously discovered that by utilizing the lower intestine of a lambkin it made an extremely sensuous object from which much pleasurable sex would ensue.
The invention was improved in the mid 1800’s by a clever Scot who found that removing the intestine from the animal made it even more versatile.
Thus are the scientific and intellectual contributions to the world by the gaggle of folk colorfully known as the muzzies. (or fuzzie wuzzies as some Brits were wont to call them.)
Thank you for your thoughtful and well-reasoned comments, Imam Abu bin Baba.
