(Starting this week the debate takes a new course. Beto Segovia submitted his
article to Pete Martinez for rebuttal in the same issue. Next week Martinez
will submit his article for Segovia's rebuttal in the coming issue.)
Terrorism - The Muslim Perspective
By Beto Segovia
In last week's edition, on Column Right, the distinguished scholar, Pete
Martinez, identifies terrorism as the overriding issue in the presidential
election. He concludes the president George W. Bush is the better qualified candidate
particularly since Senator John Kerry voiced his strong dissent to our
involvement in the Vietnam war. Martinez implies that Kerry joined Jane Fonda in the
propaganda support of the Vietcong and against our war effort, thereby
betraying our fighting men. If Mr. Martinez is right in his conclusion, then
two-thirds of our citizens are traitors, particularly students, academics,
journalists and the intellectual community of our country who overwhelmingly were
opposed to our involvement in Vietnam.
Mr. Segovia - Clinton wanted to, Kerry supported it - but Bush did it.

In this week's Column Left (Terrorims - The Muslim Perspective) former
political science professor Beto Segovia correctly identifies that I claim the
overriding issue in this year's presidential elections is - terrorism - the
greatest threat to our nation since the fall of the Soviet Communist empire's attempt
at world conquest. In my last week's column note was made that Senator Kerry
is not fit to sit on the Oval Office due to his aiding and abetting the
Vietcong on his return from duty in Vietnam. To this Mr. Segovia counters that if
such is the case then two-thirds of our citizens are traitors as he suggests
such numbers were overwhelmingly opposed to the Vietnam war.
