"'Chutzpah':I don't know why but i've always loved the word chutzpah -- it makes me feel like I'm a character in Fiddler on the roof or something. Anyway, David's point is well taken.
The classic example of chutzpah is the person who murders his parents, then pleads for mercy because he's an orphan. But how about a government leader that puts a terrorist organization in his cabinet; gives the organization free reign over the southern part of his country from which the organization every so often attacks a neighboring country; and defends the organization as 'liberators;'* and then demands reparations from the neighboring country when the terrorist organization starts a war?"
