Is Khairy self inflicting further ideological wound before leaving UMNO?

Few UMNO Youth exco members and grassroot UMNO Youth Divisions have expressed protest to the court ruling on Kalimah Allah. Khairy takes a liberal stance in line with Awnar Ibrahim and Kalimullah Hassan. His comment is made in Singapore's Straits Times below:

Umno straying from middle ground: Khairy

Party's future in doubt if it doesn't appeal to all

KUALA LUMPUR: Umno no longer commands the middle ground and if it continues on this trajectory, the party's fortunes can no longer be certain, Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin said.

Reflecting on the party's role in the raging

'Allah' controversy, he said the party is on a road that is taking it away from being a party for all.

'Nobody wants to be a loser, but we're definitely not straddling the middle ground any more. It might become what PAS used to be - a party that appeals to just a certain base. It's scary,' he told The Straits Times in an interview.

Interestingly, days after Khairy claimed UMNO is losing the middle ground, DAP's Lim Guan Eng spoke on Sunday for Middle Malaysia politics. The report in The Malaysian Insiders below:

In search of ‘Middle Malaysia’

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 19 — Is “Middle Malaysia” a new breed of voters who want more accountability from the government? Or is it merely political sloganeering?

Last Sunday, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng told members of his party that Pakatan Rakyat (PR) would have to take the middle ground and focus their efforts on these voters, as they can send the federal opposition to Putrajaya.

Lim (left), who is also Chief Minister of Penang, also said it was incumbent upon Pakatan Rakyat to create a more moderate, more tolerant Malaysia that is “Middle Malaysia.”

Is it another of Khairy's sabotage by self inflicting an ideological wound into UMNO?

Concept middle malaysia bertujuan menarik undi dikalangan masyarakat middle class . In the last PRU the opposition coaliation manage to harvest votes from the upper class and the lower class . Ini sudah jadi konsep 3 Malaysia . . Sudah gerenti lidah mereka bercabang tiga bila berkempen . Nampaknya dalam PR parti DAP is master . Their policies will be imposed upon PKR and PAS and terima pakai sebagai dasar pakatan rakyat .
Dalam usaha DSNajib Menyatukan rakyat dibawah Satu Malaysia pihak pembakang berusaha memecahkan perpaduan dengan 3 Malaysia. BN berjaya memerintah negara kerana mendapat sokongan rakyat dari semua peringkat . Budak KJ ni has his own political agenda . Another Anwar in the making T guess, so watch him closely . I mean real close ! Trust me, he will ride out all the criticism and turbulance and still survive . Any frontal assault will be rapelled . But he will fall prey to a well excecuted political ambush . Get what I mean?
