Lieberman Set To
Aid Clinton on Hill

Who was the first senator to
call Pres.-elect Bill Clinton
on election night to con-
gratulate him on his trium-
ph?
And what Jewish legis-
lator is poised to take on
greater importance when
the Clinton administration
storms Capitol Hill to enact
much of its domestic agenda
in the first days of the new
Congress?
The answer to both ques-
tions is Sen. Joseph Lieber-
man, D-Conn.
Mr. Lieberman, an early
supporter of the Arkansas
governor, worked tirelessly
on behalf of the Democratic
ticket. He raised more than
$2 million for the campaign,
much of it from Jewish con-
tributors. In the final weeks
of the slugfest, Sen. Lieber-
man traversed the country
on behalf of the Clinton-Gore
ticket.
Some observers say that
the senator — the only Or-
thodox Jew in the Senate —

The American Jewish Com-
mittee has always argued
that a democracy cannot
pick and choose which
groups deserve civil rights.
So it is not surprising that
the organization is joining in
an amicus brief asking the
Supreme Court to reverse
the dismissal of a U.S. Naval
Academy midshipman for
being gay.
The case involves Joseph
Stefan, a midshipman who
was only weeks from
graduation. Mr. Stefan told
a friend he was gay, the
friend turned him in, and
the midshipman was quickly
dismissed.
"Basically, the argument
is that he was excluded for
no reason other than his pri-
vate, personal sexual
preference," said Samuel
Rabinove, AJC's legal direc-
tor. "He was an outstanding
midshipman and in the top
tenth of his class. Expelling
him simply because he is a
homosexual is illogical."
The case, which the
Supreme Court will hear in
its current term, could have
a major affect on the emer-
ging battle over gay rights

— although the incoming
Clinton administration,
which has promised to lift
the ban against homosex-
uals in the military, could
diminish the importance of
the expected decision.
The AJC, which reported
no flak from other commu-
nal or religious groups be-
cause of its gay rights stand,
also worked against two an-
ti-gay rights propositions in
last week's elections: One in
Oregon, which voters re-
jected; one in Colorado,
which passed.

Iran: Arming
For War?

Various governmental agen-
cies and members of Con-
gress are alarmed that Iran
is continuing to acquire
high-tech weapons capable
of letting the militant
Islamic nation wage an
offensive war.
Iran's recent purchase of
two Russian attack sub-
marines is just the tip of a
highly dangerous iceberg,
said Thomas Neumann, ex-
