Memphis Churches

Continued from preceding page

There's no reason why not to
do that now," he added.
The program, coordinated
by the Religious Roundtable,
lists as co-sponsors 11 Chris-
tian movements ranging
from the mainstream to fun-
damentalist. Churches rep-
resented include Assemblies
of God, Bible and Indepen-
dent Faith Churches, Bap-
tists, Catholics, Epis-
copalians, Methodists,
Lutherans, Nazarenes,
Pentecostals and Presby-
The Religious Roundtable
was created in 1978 to pro-
vide "Bible- believing"
Christians a non-political
platform from which to ex-
press their views, according
to Mr. McAteer. While there
is no recent membership
count, he said the group has
a top mailing list of about
150,000 people.
The money raised, minus
the estimated $50,000 to
$70,000 operating expenses
of the event, will be handed
over to the Memphis Jewish
Federation. That agency will
turn 100 percent of the funds
over to the United Jewish Ap-
peal national office in New
York City, according to Mr.
The dollars will be
designated to fund four early
September flights of Soviet
Jews from their transit point
in Budapest, Hungary, to
Tel Aviv, Israel. UJA offi-
cials estimate that one flight
of 230 Soviet Jews costs ap-
proximately $250,000. The
federation executive and
others stressed that the idea
for "On Wings of Eagles"
was brought to them by the
Christian community and
did not come at the sugges-
tion of Memphis Jewish
Dr. Alon Liel, consul gen-
eral of Israel for the
Southeast, also has actively
supported the effort and
plans to attend the rally.
"When you see people lov-
ing Israel, you don't ask too
many questions. You get all
the support and love that
you can get," he said. "They
love us and support us and
express it. I don't think
there's anything wrong with
A retired executive from
the Colgate-Palmolive com-
pany, Mr. McAteer makes
frequent visits to Israel.
During those trips he has
met with a number of top-
ranking Israelis including
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir and cabinet min-
isters. This past spring, the
10th annual prayer
breakfast meeting in Wash-
ington, D.C., attracted 1,000
people including U.S. sena-

tors and representatives and
American Jewish commun-
ity leaders.
Mr. McAteer said he sup-
ports Israel for three
reasons, "the Bible, human-
itarian and because I have a
military background. Being .
a U.S. citizen, I think Israel
is the best ally the United
States has."
Noting that he continually
has to explain his support for
Israel to. skeptics, Mr.
McAteer added, "There's no
hidden agenda here. The
purpose of this is for Bible-
believing Christians to ex-
press their unconditional
love to God's ancient people,
"I'm not trying to trick
anybody in any way for
anything," he said. "I'm try-
ing to express my faith and
love in my Jewish
friends." ❑
