ERIC SILVER SPECIAL TO THE JEWISH NEWS

L

It's been five months since Aaron's Bar Mitzvah and our friends still rave about it. Your entertainers made
this party. Their high energy,and smiles kept the dance floor packed all night long. Everything was perfect.
Not only did we dance our tails off, but your staff never lost sight of the fact that this was a Bar Mitzvah. Every
entertainer made Aaron feel as though he was the most important person in the world. I have seen Star
Trax at numerous events and I'm amazed with the creative new ideas you come up with for each party.

Your whole office team including yourselves, Amanda, Randy, and Vonda, are terrific. Everyone made me
feel as though I was your only client. Your knowledge of parties including timing, spacing and music selection,
helped to put my mind at-ease. Your efficiency, creativity, friendly faces, and talent make Star Trax the "True
Entertainment Professionals"! We cant wait to work with you at all our future events.

Thanks again,

always buy or recreate the nec-
essary equipment. Much of the
equipment for making biological
weapons is dual-use, civilian and
military. It's available. And we
shouldn't underestimate the tech-
nological capability of the Iraqi
engineers."
Dr. Dany Shoham, a research
chemist, reserve colonel and
writer on chemical and biological
warfare, adds: "If Saddam has got
the warheads, it wouldn't be dif-
ficult to re-weaponize such war-
heads.
Conversion from conventional
to biological warhead is not sim-
ple, but Iraq could overcome the
technological problems."
For Israel, the prospect is of
more than academic interest.
Avraham Rotem, a retired gen-
eral and former strategic planner
in the Israel Defense Forces, says
bluntly: "Israel has no means to
protect itself against such a
threat. We would be completely
vulnerable to a Scud attack with
biological warheads. No one has
anything to stop a Scud, and it's
going to remain like this for the
next 10 years."
Dr. Shoham estimates that a
single warhead armed with an-
thrax could cause "thousands" of
casualties if fired on Tel Aviv. A
botulism attack would affect

De- Renee, Marc, and all my new friends at Star Trax,

ast weekend the Jerusalem
Post ran a cartoon by Oleg
showing the ravaged, gray
face of Rolf Ekeus, head of
the U.N. Special Commission on
Iraq. In each of five frames, head-
ed 1991 through 1995, he is con-
fidently announcing: `We've
destroyed all Iraqi weapons of
mass destruction." A sixth frame
reads bleakly: "'To be continued."
Israel has no quarrel with the
Swedish diplomat, but is urging
the United Nations, and above
all the United States, not to take
Saddam Hussein at his word
when he says he has nothing up
his sleeve.
With memories still fresh of
the 39 Iraqi Scuds, armed with
conventional high explosives, that
hit Tel Aviv in January and Feb-
ruary 1991, it is literally a mat-
ter of life or death for Israelis,
who still have no effective defense
against such missiles.
Strategic analysts here argue
that even if the shaky Iraqi dic-
tator has destroyed his biological
and chemical stockpiles, he still
has the resources to rebuild them.
Professor Efraim Inbar, direc-
tor of the Begin-Sadat Centre for
Strategic Studies at Bar-Ilan Uni-
versity, near Tel Aviv, warns:
"The Iraqis have done it once,
they could do it again. They could
