There are 44 differences between UMNO and PAS, says this blog: malaysian-choice. (see image too).
I see people are getting alarmed at the ‘secret’ talks between PAS and UMNO. PM met PAS leaders 3 times in the past, declares Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s policy paper, The Malaysian Insider.
I am not at all anxious about UMNO meeting PAS to talk over Malay Unity and Islam issues. Are you?
They seem to be doing it quite a lot, as the newspapers tell us, but all I see is that UMNO is becoming more disunited as ever. The talks are not very successful, are they?
UMNO does it all the time – trying to give the impression its becoming buddies with PAS, whenever PKR or Anwar Ibrahim seem to be in the spotlight.
Remember, the September 16 deadline is too near. How can UMNO just sit on their laurels and let the Oppositions sweep them off their feet?
UMNO is always trying to destablise PAKATAN RAKYAT and its not-so-diehard supporters that there is a possibility that PAS will jump ship.
PAS on the other hand is also very smart. It does not lose anything by showing its openess to UMNO, or any other party.
Truth is, PAS is more wary of PKR, saying it trusts DAP more than the latter. This is of course, ‘secret’ statements of some PAS leaders, in ‘private’ conversations with me.
Can you trust me?
What UMNO is trying to do, but which it is not very good at is: divert attention from its glaring weaknesses and dying relevancy in the entire political scheme. It tries very hard these days, but seem to be losing more and more grounds.
Tell me, if UMNO were so strong, why would it need to dialogue with PAS?
All UMNO is interested in is NOT Malay unity but UMNO unity, and it hopes to leverage on its meeting with PAS to show its support base that it is doing all it can, even consorting with the Opposition – people they bitch about every second, to ensure that Malay unity can be preserved.
From what I see, Malay Unity is indeed intact. It’s just UMNO unity that is falling apart.
This is an old trick lah. Find a new toy, please, UMNO. Or begone!
