What’s the Arabic for ‘Chutzpah’?

From the  Irish Examiner

Islamic countries today asked the UN Human Rights Council to examine the question of religious tolerance, saying that Pope Benedict’s remarks on Islam threaten to alienate Muslims from the West.

Catholic World News suggests

Alternatively, the UN Human Rights Council might decide to talk about religious tolerance in the context of the question: Can Christians attend Mass freely in Islamic countries?

Actually, to be fair, it’s only Saudi (as far as I know) where you can’t attend Mass freely, but it might get the discussion off to an interesting start.
