If Essebsi Wins, I'm Going to Need Better Glasses

If Beji Caid Essebsi, who got 42% of the vote to Moncef Marouki's 34% in the first round in Tunisia, wins the December runoff, older folk like me may need better glasses when reading small print in Arabic newspapers.


President Essebsi: الرئيس السبسي

President al-Sisi:    الرئيس السيسي

See the problem? What a difference a dot makes.
