The definition of chutzpah

'In The Joys of Yiddish, Leo Rosten defines chutzpah as “that quality enshrined in a man who, having killed his mother and father, throws himself on the mercy of the court because he is an orphan.”

I would like to add an alternative definition: “that quality enshrined in a palestinian who asks for a humanitarian permit to enter Israel, in order to receive treatment to improve his eyesight so he can take part in future sniper attacks against Israelis.” '
