Meanwhile, windows at
10 bank branches in
Brooklyn and Queens
were smashed early Mon-
day in an apparent protest
against the banks' alleged
compliance with the Arab
boycott of Israel.
A man called a news
agency later and said that a
group to which he belonged,
Save Our Israel Land (SOIL)
had committed the act be-
cause the banks were "col-
laborating with the Arabs."
A spokesman for a group
of SOIL members who pick-
eted Chase Manhattan Sun-
day denied the group had
broken windows at the 10
banks earlier in the day but
said they "applauded" the
action.

Romania Bows
to Arab Pressure

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Romania will cease using
the Eilat-Ashkelon oil pipe-
line to transport crude oil
from the Persian Gulf en
route to Romania.
Pipeline officials con-
firmed a report to this effect
from Egypt. They said Rol
mania was a large customer
of the pipeline but with-
drawal of its business would
not be a knock-out blow.
The officials conceded
that the pipeline was not
currently making a profit,
but said it was due to the
general recession in the oil
transport industry which
was hitting at the tanker
trade too.
Some consternation was
expressed when the original
report came from Egypt cit-
ing Arab boycott officials
there who said Romania's
move was taken "to consoli-
date relations with Arab
states." Some Israeli offi-
cials spoke sorrowfully of
Romania "kowtowing to the
boycott."
Informed sources said
that this was not, strictly
speaking, the case. Romania
simply decided to' buy oil
from an Arab state cheaper
than the oil it had been buy-
ing until now from Iran.
The Arab state, however, in-
sisted that its oil should not
be shipped through the Is-
raeli pipeline but through
the Suez Canal, the sources
said, , .
