Murray Street: The name Murray is Celtic and the meaning is "lives by the sea." In some interpretations, it is regarded as "from the sea" and/or "Lord of the Sea" (a/k/a Poseidon.)
The tragedy follows the Martin Place/Lindt siege which traumatized Australians this week. Queensland Premier Campbell Newman said, “These are trying days for our country.”
“This neighbourhood is going to be a different place,” said 20-year-old Ngatu Temu, who knew the family well.
Claims of "virulent anti-semitism" indicates a shortsighted reading of synchromystic and twilight language analayses.
The family names Temu and Thaiday appear to be indigenous in origin, from Pacific Islands, via Cook Island, through New Zealand, and ending up in Australia.
Night flight emails me this: "In addition to the name Manoora sounding like menorah, there were also eight children murdered and eight candles on the menorah. Strange coincidence."
These are all merely coincidences, but strange things do happen.
"It is in the humble opinion of this narrator that this is not just 'something that happened.' This cannot be 'one of those things'...This, please, cannot be that. And for what I would like to say, I can't. This was not just a matter of chance.…These strange things happen all the time." ~ Magnolia
If this turns out to be a case of the mother stabbing her own children, it fits into a pattern in Australia of a high number of cases of mothers killing their own children. The infanticide is often carried out by taking the kids out into the desert in a van, and the killing (murder-suicide) of the mother and her children by carbon monoxide poisoning.
Update: The mother of seven of the children, 34-year old Mersane Warria, , also known as Raina Thaiday, now has been arrested over the murder. The eighth victim is believed to be Warria’s niece.
Neighbors reported Warria was seen pulling all of her belongings out the front door, screaming she was starting a "new life."
This is a domestic mental health issue. Neighbors reported they saw Warria pulling her belongings out the front door, exclaiming that she wanted to start a new life.
