Stand firm on slaughter ban, urges architect of the Cartoon Crisis
It's not often you can say this, but Muslim and Jewish groups across the world are currently united in protest against a Danish ritual slaughter ban that requires animals to be stunned before they are slaughtered.
Although the slaughter law, which was introduced on February 17, ended a practice that hadn't been used for ten years, Arabic media last week warned of a Middle Eastern boycott of Danish products similar to the one in 2006 that followed the Mohammed Cartoon Crisis.
Second crisis unlikely
However, debater and political activist Ahmed Akkari doesn't think that the slaughter controversy will escalate to that level again.
