Raw kibbie would be like eating steak tartar...not for the faint of heart. Think of it this way: You have a hunk of meat. As long as the animal itself wasn't comtaminated with bacteria, you would be ok. A steak can only have bacteria only on the surface...unlike ground beef (which is all mixed up allowing bacteria to go everywhere). So if you didn't eat the outside and only ate the inside...no bacteria...in theory. If the restaurant was impeccably clean and you had a great immune system, you could eat raw kibbie with no problem. I would prefer that they grind it themselves...less contamination. There would be few places that I would try that. (Not that I like my meat THAT rare.) I am very particular about where I eat "blue" meat...and I never eat ground meat at restaurants that is not cooked through. I've had food poisoning and its not fun...
As for grape leaves...I've seen jars of them with the olives in the grocery store. I would rinse them...just so they weren't so salty. I'm sure if you had an Middle Eastern Market that their leaves would be better. If you asked them, they may give you some pointers.
If loving me is wrong, you don't want to be right.
Don't touch the hair!
