Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam organization to patrol 15 subsidized apartment buildings in Venice, reigniting a controversy with Jewish leaders.

Complaining that the unconventional guards had failed to stem drug dealing and gang crime at 15 low-income Venice apartment buildings, the managers have fired a security firm affiliated with the Nation of Islam. The firm, N.O.I. Security Agency Inc., won the job last year despite opposition from Jewish groups charging that the preachings of the Nation of Islam's leader, Louis Farrakhan, were violent and anti-Semitic.

The 16-unit complex is one of 15 Venice apartment buildings that will soon be patrolled by a security company affiliated with Minister Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam.

A security firm affiliated with the Rev. Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam has been pulled off patrols at a Venice apartment complex for failing to curb drug dealing so rampant that federal authorities threatened to seize the building.

That the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development has engaged in "confidential" discussions with the Nation of Islam's "security agency" (Times, Dec. 22) is in violation of its own rules and regulations, as well as federal law regarding discrimination in employment. Public housing must be made available on a non-racial, creedal basis, and integrated. The nation of Islam restricts its membership to those who profess the Islamic faith and accept the disciplines the Rev. Louis Farrakhan imposes; otherwise they are booted out. The Nation of Islam security patrol by its very nature would thus be closed to all but its followers and in violation of our civil right laws with respect to equal employment opportunities.

Kicking off her closing argument, prosecutor Marcia Clark smiled, placed a well-manicured hand over her heart, and urged jurors to focus on the evidence--even though, she acknowledged, "the sideshows may be very interesting." Under no such obligation ourselves, we hereby present the Simpson sideshows: * Talk about omens . . .

Los Angeles police officials and representatives of the Nation of Islam met Monday and agreed to a continuing dialogue designed to ease tension between the two sides. The two-hour meeting, called historic by some participants, grew indirectly from a violent clash earlier this month between Muslims and police officers.
