My mother was observing to me that Bashshar Al-Asad is by far the most intelligent Arab leader but that he has zero charisma and zero sense of humor. Personally, I think that the president of the Comoros Islands is also very smart and he has the best command of Arabic of any Arab leader. But if you want to pick the most illiterate Arab leader, and the most fumbling one, the Saudi king wins hands down.
