Syrian Muslims Infected With Kuru, A Disease Of Cannibals

 

 

 

” 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.

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.”

Now Testicle-Eating Fish Related To The Piranha Is Caught In NEW JERSEY Lake Weeks After It Was Found In France

 

 

” A New Jersey pensioner hooked a massive surprise this weekend when he reeled in an exotic fish notorious for reportedly killing men by ripping off their testicles from a public park’s lake.

When 77-year-old Tom Boylan caught the 10-inch fish on Saturday he was struck by how much it looked like a piranha and took it home and stored it in his freezer overnight.

The next day he visited a local aquarium and was told the fish was in fact a pacu, known as the ‘Ball Cutter’, the pacu has reportedly been responsible for the deaths of two fishermen in the Pacific, who died from blood loss after the fish had bitten off their testicles.”

Daughter, 18, Cuts Off Her Father’s Head After He Raped Her In Their Papua New Guinea Village Home

 

 

” A teenage girl chopped her father’s head clean off with a bush knife after he raped her in their home in the highlands of Papua New Guinea.

Now residents of the village have formed a protective ring around the 18-year-old, refusing to hand her over to the police because they agreed her ‘evil’ father deserved to die.

A local church leader, Pastor Lucas Kumi from the village of Rang in the Western Highlands, said the entire community would refuse to allow the girl to be subjected to any official investigation.”

 

 

 

 

 

Witch Hunts In Papua New Guinea Linked To Jealousy

 

 

” On a tropical island in Papua New Guinea where most people live in huts, a mob armed with guns, machetes and axes stormed a wooden house by night. They seized Helen Rumbali and three female relatives, set the building on fire and took the women away to be tortured. Their alleged crime: Witchcraft.

After being repeatedly slashed with knives, Rumbali’s older sister and two teenage nieces were released following negotiations with police. Rumbali, a 40-something former schoolteacher, was beheaded.

Her assailants claimed they had clear proof that Rumbali had used sorcery to kill another villager who recently died of sickness: The victim’s grave bore the marks of black magic, and a swarm of fire flies apparently led witch hunters to Rumbali’s home.”

 

 

 

 

     Readers may recall the case of Kepari Lanieta , a young mother who , accused of using sorcery to kill a neighbor’s child was burned at the stake back in February .

Python On Plane Wing Captured On Video

 

 

Vacationing Python

 

 

 

” Stunned Qantas Airways passengers watched out their windows as a large python clung to a plane’s wing during a nearly two-hour flight from Australia‘s northeastern city of Cairns to Papua New Guinea.

The 3-meter (10-foot) python fought to stay on the wing, pulling itself forward only to be pushed back by the frigid wind.

Passenger Robert Weber videotaped the struggle and told Australia’s Fairfax Media that the wind whipping the snake against the side of the plane left a bloody smear.

The python managed to hang on until the plane landed in Port Moresby, but a Qantas spokesman said the creature was dead on arrival. “
