      The Definition of Chutzpah!

      by Tamar Yonah

      Not ashamed, rather angry and insolent.  Chutzpah.

      "The father of Mohamed Merah , the killer shot dead Thursday in France, has announced plans to file a complaint against France "for killing" his son, he said to AFP Monday."

      It seems to me, that a normal human being, knowing what their offspring did to these victims, would be embarrassed.  They would be ashamed, heart broken, apologetic that their own son, their own flesh and blood could have perpetrated such a horrific and horrendous act.  I am not talking about a family in Gaza who sees no problem in strapping a bomb on their children and sending them out for the kill, I am talking about a family that lives in the West, in France, a place where they see and enjoy freedom, tolerance, prosperity, and modernity, that don't live under the Hamas, that didn't vote in a 'Hamas' government.  

      If you were a parent, and your son went on a rampage like this, would you not be ashamed to ever show your face again?  How could you believe that the boy you raised in your care, could have chased after a firghtened little girl of 8 years old, grabbed her by the hair, and put a bullet in her head... and then, when seeing she wasn't dead yet, pull her head up as she is lying on the ground bleeding to death, and then put another two bullets in her?  If you knew your child cold-bloodedly perpetrated these crimes, and then filmed these killings to watch later  [of a three year old little boy, and other innocent people] would you not just die from shame?  

      But Mohamed Merah's father is not ashamed, in fact, he is outraged at the French police for killing his son.  “I will hire the biggest named lawyers and work for the rest of my life to pay (their) costs. I will sue France for killing my son.”  
      Not only that, but his father wants his son to be buried in Algeria. “I have decided to bury my son in Algeria,” the father, Mohamed Benalel Merah, said. 


      It doesn't end here.  There was a parade of supporters for terrorist  Mohamed Merah marching for him in France.  For HIM -not the innocent victims.


      With parents like these who favor Algeria over France, with French citizens like these who support the terrorist and march for him in French streets , I say, deport the whole da-ned lot to Algeria.  Let them all be buried there. Chutzpah!
