Two of the infected were sent from Syria to a hosptial in Ghazi Antab in Turkey for further examination to only be transferred to another hospital in Germany. One of the two already died, since Kuru is 100% fatal. ... One of the infected men in the German hospital was confirmed to have eaten human flesh, and he eventually died. When the Turkish hospital was asked on the details of the cannibalism case, they refrained from saying anything.
Moreover, the Free Syrian Army said they will be doing an investigation on the cannibalism case, and this sparks a hunch as to what their intentions are behind this.
Overall, there are 8 to 20 cases of Kuru in Syria; Kuru strictly is caused by cannibalism, and cannibalism was involved from the report on what took place in the German hospital.
So they have apparently been eating brains in Syria for some time....
If the incubation time is long.
One may eat the flesh of a human body. It is not allowed to kill a Muslim nor a free non-Muslim under Muslim rule (because he is useful for the society), nor a prisoner because he belongs to other Muslims. But you may kill an enemy fighter or an adulterer and eat his body (716 in volume 1, Al-Kortoby)
.Poor people in between a rock and a hard place trying to survive ..sad state of affairs ...very sad ..
the butt of a pig is more repulsive than the nutritious brain of a human being.
" Could this Kuru have a less sinister origin?

Isn't bacon the butt of a pig?!
The brain of a human being has gotta be highly nutritious. It takes 20% of our caloric needs to sustain itself.
Morality aside, the butt of a pig is more repulsive than the nutritious brain of a human being.
That's just it. Is it because they are 'starving'. Or is it because these rebels ENJOY eating human brains? The link I gave shows that eating humans has been part of a ritual over there .... a dark ritual that isn't talked about .... and the information I gave shows the college folks in Egypt (I think it's Egypt) saying it's okay for Muslims to eat the dead bodies of their enemies.
Wow I really don't see why anyone would want to eat the brains,
The brain, like most other internal organs, or offal, can serve as nourishment. Brains used for nourishment include those of pigs, squirrels, horses, cattle, monkeys, chickens and goats. In many cultures, different types of brain are considered a delicacy.
DHA, an important omega-3 fatty acid which is also referred to by the technical designation of 22:6, is found concentrated in mammalian brains. For example, according to the nutrition data website, 3 oz. (85 g) of cooked beef brain contains 727 mg of DHA. By way of comparison, the NIH has determined that small children need at least 150 mg of DHA per day, and pregnant and lactating women need at least 300 mg of DHA
The makeup of the brain is about 12% fat, most of which is located in myelin (which itself is 70-80% fat). Specific fatty acid ratios will depend in part on the diet of the animal it is harvested from. The brain is also very high in cholesterol. As an example, a 140 g can of "pork brains in milk gravy", a single serving, contains 3500 milligrams of cholesterol, 1170% of the USRDA
