The subject under discussion in the Renesan current events class at St. John’s United Methodist Church had turned to the Mideast, and Marlene Foster just put it out there: Will Iran’s new president, Hassan Rouhani, really be any more moderate than his predecessor, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?

Well, that depends, said Ed Rau. He reminded Foster and the other 15 people around the adjoining tables that Rouhani would have to please, at least to some extent, the three main political factions in Iran: the mullahs, the Revolutionary Guard and the general population. “He is going to have to walk a very fine line,” said Rau, 85, a retired lawyer, Air Force pilot and military intelligence officer.
