Who is Allen Ruff and why does he oppose Chuck Hagel?

Alleged “pro-Palestinian peacenik” and enemy of 9/11 truth Allen Ruff wants to defeat Chuck Hagel’s nomination as Secretary of Defense. Why?

I got to know Allen Ruff – a big, dark, hulking, bearded, scowling bully who looks a bit like the old Zionist media caricatures of the late Ayatollah Khomeini, only about 100 pounds heavier – at pro-Palestine demonstrations in Madison, Wisconsin during the 1990s.

Ruff took an instant dislike to me – if “dislike” isn’t too weak a word. At first I couldn’t figure out why. Gradually, it became apparent that Ruff was the leader of a gang of left-wing Jews who were trying to set themselves up as the local pro-Palestine movement – and police the thoughts, words, and deeds of Palestinians, Muslim students and other goyim.

As an articulate American Muslim who shares the near-unanimous position of the people of the Middle East – that “Israel” is a criminal enterprise, not a legitimate state – I must have rubbed Ruff the wrong way. He obviously didn’t like me challenging his attempts to police the opinions of the foreign students and pro-Palestine activists. In particular, he was incensed at my suggestion that Palestinians make common cause with Americans rebelling against Israel’s influence in the USA. Any reference to the “Israeli lobby,” much less the “Jewish lobby,” made Ruff explode in volcanic vituperation.

Any and all talk about how Israel dominates US policy, Ruff insisted, was anti-Semitic slander. He claimed that US policy was set by wealthy WASP imperialists, and certainly not by the poor, powerless pro-Israel Jews.

In 2004, Ruff’s hatred for me exploded into near-psychosis when I began leading 9/11 truth teach-ins at the UW-Madison campus. Just hearing me assert that 9/11 was an inside job made him wax apoplectic – even more so than Kenneth Katzman!

Allen Ruff didn’t like Mike Delaney’s “ISRAEL DID 9/11″ T-shirt – so he assaulted him.

When I organized David Ray Griffin’s 2005 “9/11 and American Empire” talk at UW-Madison, which was broadcast nationwide on C-SPAN, Ruff suffered a public meltdown. As I was standing at the podium about to introduce Griffin, Ruff approached me, his face twitching in homicidal rage, growling: “We’re keeping a file on you! That’s right, we’re keeping a file on you!”

Immediately after the Griffin event –  a stunning success attended by almost 500 people – Ruff launched an internet hate campaign attempting to smear me and 9/11 truth as “anti-Semitic.” He even falsely claimed that I had accused him of being a Mossad agent! This struck me as a very odd false accusation, coming from someone who had just threatened me that “We’re keeping a file on you!” Was he protesting too much? (For the record, I doubt he’s a paid Mossad agent; but he sure acts like an unpaid sayanim or “volunteer Mossad helper.”)

When James Petras began doing his magnificent work outing the power of the Zionist lobby, and pointing out that the 9/11 wars were purely for Israel not oil, Ruff predictably tried to shoot Petras down.

Why would a self-styled radical leftist like Ruff try to take over a local pro-Palestine movement, steer it away from challenging or even naming the Zionist lobby, and fanatically oppose anyone who questions 9/11?

Today, the nomination of Chuck Hagel, the Senator “not from Israel, but from the US,” suggests that Netanyahu’s failed attempts to bully Obama may have created a backlash that will end US enslavement to Israel…and possibly even lead to massive cuts in military spending, thereby ending the 9/11 wars against Israel’s enemies.

So predictably, Allan Ruff just wrote a piece for The Progressive trying to convince “pwogwessives” (half-informed middlebrow leftists with good intentions) that they should oppose Hagel’s nomination – a nomination that, more than anything any US president has done since JFK, signals a turn toward peace.

9/11 truth was the only quick way to end the 9/11 wars. Ruff fanatically opposed it, thereby lending his support to those wars.

Chuck Hagel’s nomination signals a slow but inexorable end to the 9/11 wars. Ruff opposes Hagel, instead making common cause with the PNAC neocons, who are dedicated to keeping those wars going (not only to destroy Israel’s enemies, but to keep a lid on 9/11).

Peace – for the US as well as the Middle East – will require breaking the back of the Israel lobby. Ruff is working overtime not only to protect the Israel lobby, which is led by the 9/11 perp neocons, but to reinforce the taboo against even admitting it exists.

Why is self-styled “peacenik” Allen Ruff working so hard to offer clandestine support to wars that have killed millions and displaced more than ten million people?

  1. anyway, we’re one false flag away from attacking Iran even if Hagel gets in there-but-yea, hope he gets it!

  2. So, Jeb Bush wins in 16 and puts John Bolton in there!-hardly call that winning

  3. I appreciate this response, Kevin. It is this type of explanation that helps to understand the nuanced divisions that are anything but obvious to a “lay” person as I am. More commonly, I find myself simply looking at the Hagels of the world as part of the “front” or “false-politic”, so to speak. Just as I have come to view Obama as a very effective false-front – I hear what they say, but I watch what they do. Quite frequently actions and words are diametrically opposed. So, I encourage you and others like you to continue to point out these subtle (or maybe not so subtle) differences in key persons and what they represent – particularly using examples of their actions to support your thesis. We depend upon you and are grateful for your insights!

    • Agree Terry…..Kevin’s explanation above is a valuable insight that could well be correct. However, ‘the proof of the pudding’ etc. so we will have to watch carefully and see how things develop.

  4. Thanks for this very interesting news, Aamish.

    Terry, Chuck Hagel is obviously an insider. His nomination is significant because of what it tells us about the struggle between two factions of insiders – the neocon Zionist extreme-warmongers, and the “empire-lite” realists. It suggests the realists are winning. This could mean the difference between the neocon plan for ever-increasing military budgets and big wars (such as against Iran), versus the realist plan for a gradual draw-down of the US empire and its military spending and pointless killing, with more emphasis on “soft power” in service to US interests rather than Israeli interests.

  5. There is a bit of history being revealed for the first time in connection with Hagel’s nomination: the report of spying by US Naval Intelligence Officer Jonathan Jay Pollard on behalf of Israel was declassified on 16th December 2012, presumably to blunt the attack by Israeli lobby on Hagel’s nomination. See this report: http://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2013/01/13/israeli-spy-was-central-cog-in-nuclear-weapons-proliferation-alliance.html

  6. We are talking about the same Chuck Hagel that is a member of the CFR, has attended the Bilderberg meetings twice, voted for the Patriot Act twice, voted for NDAA and voted in favor of the increased spending for war – aren’t we?!

  7. To Chuck Hagel: Israel did 9-11!! What are you going to do about it?? To Veterans Today: What good is Chuck Hagel at Defense if he allows the Israelis to get away with murdering 3000 Americans??

  8. I saw these co-opt guys working the streets in Akron and Kent as far back as 1970. Their techniques are rooted in classic democracy – the democracy that some of our ancestors warned us would destroy the American republic eventually. I saw the same techniques at work in the Perot campaign in 1992. This Ruff guy may be a clown, like the famous JDL guys who died in prison, but most of the co-opt guys are real pros and are low-key.

  9. Hagel knows he has to kiss Zionist ass to get confirmed. Maybe he’ll turn around and bite it later.

  10. It’s hard to find a liberal, educated Jewish person who wants to discuss the Israeli involvement in 911, I know this from experience.

    I’m not a big fan of Hagel, sadly I think if he becomes the Secretary of Defense he may become just another Israeli stooge.

    Excerpt from an article:

    Chuck Hagel is moving to assuage concerns raised by pro-Israel Democrats over his nomination as defense secretary, laying out a hawkish posture toward Iran and Hezbollah and apologizing for characterizing powerful activists as the “Jewish lobby.”

    In a letter to California Sen. Barbara Boxer, a Jewish Democrat, Hagel said he fully supports unilateral sanctions on Iran and condemned Hezbollah as a terrorist threat to Israel. He called it “a very poor choice of words” when he referred in a 2006 interview that the “Jewish lobby” tends to “intimidate” lawmakers, saying he understands how such words “can be construed as anti-Israel.”

    “Most Americans, myself included, are overwhelmingly supportive of a strong U.S.-Israel strategic and security relationship,” Hagel said in the letter, adding he would work to “expand the depth and breadth” of the countries’ ties if he’s confirmed as defense secretary. “This broad support comes from both Jews and non-Jews alike.”

    Boxer, who had withheld her support, said Monday night she now backs the nominee after her extensive phone conversations and his detailed letter.

    “First and foremost, he has pledged without reservation to support President Obama’s polices — policies that I believe have made our world safer and our alliances stronger,” Boxer said in a Monday night statement.

    “I asked him about a number of issues — including America’s special relationship with Israel, the threats posed by Iran to the world and the treatment of women and gay and lesbian members of our military — and his answers were reassuring and show a sensitivity and understanding of these issues.”

    Most notably, critics have seized on comments Hagel made questioning Israel’s dealings with Hezbollah in Lebanon, including during their 2006 military conflict. That same year, he had declined to sign onto a letter calling on the European Union to list Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. Hagel also has been cool toward Iranian sanctions in the past. He once voted against a resolution calling the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization, and Hagel signed onto a 2009 letter urging President Barack Obama to begin peace talks with Hamas.

    But in the letter to Boxer, Hagel said he “always” considered Hezbollah a terrorist group, pointing to comments he made over the years making that case as well as past statements referring to Iran as a “state sponsor” of terrorism. And he said the 2006 conflict was not the fault of the Lebanese government, but he blamed it on Hezbollah, which he called a “threat” to Israel and Lebanon. He argued he supported defense appropriations bills that included foreign aid to Israel. And he pointed out that he’s previously called Hamas a terrorist group, as well.

    “America’s relationship with Israel is one that is fundamentally built on our nation’s shared values, common interests and shared ideals,” Hagel said.

    Brian: Hezbollah is not a terrorist group, Iran is not a “state sponsor” of terrorism and Hamas is not a terrorist group, he’s either ignorant about terrorism or kissing up to AIPAC, yes he has said a few things AIPAC doesn’t like.

    Once more from Hagel: “America’s relationship with Israel is one that is fundamentally built on our nation’s shared values, common interests and shared ideals,” Hagel said.

    Brian: Just based on that comment I can’t support Hagel for Secretary of Defense or any other position in the United States government, even if the comment was dripping with insincerity.

    Israel’s values include killing and terrorizing Palestinian men, women and children for land and pleasure, tricking its supposed friend the United States to attack Islam via Israeli’s evil 911 false flag, leaching all the money it can from Americans and controlling our government. The Israeli government, the #1 terrorist organization in the world, has turned the United States government into its willing terrorist stooge.

    I wonder what type of blackmail information the Israeli government has on Hagel. He’s not going to try and break the chokehold AIPAC has on the Pink House.

    • Hagel said in the letter, adding he would work to “expand the depth and breadth” of the countries’ ties if he’s confirmed as defense secretary.

      Brian: he wants to have a stronger relationship with a country that terrorizes Palestinians and did 911.

  11. Kevin, here is another Netanyahu picture you might like. (I created a template I can put in everything I want.)
