Like so many Yiddish words (and curses), the word “chutzpah” is very descriptive. The best definition is the old joke which appears in Leo Rosten’s classic lexicon, “The Joy of Yiddish.” He explains chutzpah as when you kill your parents, and then plead for mercy before the court because you are an orphan. That’s chutzpah!

In many respects, this accurately describes what the terrorist authoritarian regime Hamas is doing in Gaza.
