I was thinking on the plane yesterday, King `Abdullah is the weakest king ever in Saudi history. He has no constituency and no major factions within the royal family. To be sure, King Khalid who followed King Faysal did not rule much: but that was by choice. He was more into prayer and falconry, and he did not mind that Fahd rule on his behalf.
