A more academic English translation of the Spanish word "cojones", that originally stood for testicles, two spheric glands part of the reproductive system of males, also commonly known as balls.

To have testicular fortitude is to show strength, courage and sagacity in challenging situations. The story of how strength and courage is related to two nuts encased in shriveled skin hanging from between a man’s legs is a fascinating story that i don't have the time to go into right now.
You can’t win with reserve and lassitude
And you can’t face the unforgiving multitude
Without the manly trait of testicular fortitude

Baltajia, plural of baltaji, also baltaguia, in its Egyptian intonation. The word was made popular in the Arab protests of 2011 in Tunisia and Egypt. It is thought to be of Turkish origin, meaning "weapon wielding thug".

Baltajia has come to reference any group of rubble rousing individuals that infiltrate an otherwise peaceful protest for sabotaging or other more menial purposes. The baltajia can either be for hire for political aims, or just plain street thugs whose only goal is to loot and plunder.
There was a first wave of peaceful and thoughtful protesters which was then followed by a stone wielding horde of baltajia. That was the time when all hell broke loose.
