inspiration
 n.— «Sometime last year, Hariri’s patience with Syria finally snapped. The moment was probably last August when he had an “inspiration”—the Lebanese euphemism for a summons to Damascus—and was told that the presidential term of Mr Lahoud, which was due to expire in November, had to be extended.» —“Syria feels heat as evidence in Lebanon PM’s murder points to bomb under road” by Brian Whitaker in Beirut Guardian (U.K.) Mar. 22, 2005.
