The 'Islam or Liberalism' debate was held on 23rd January 2009 at the London School of Economics. Hamza Andreas Tzortzis, international lecturer, public speaker and researcher for the Hittin Institute was arguing for Islam. Hamza argued that the liberalisms premise of atomism or individualism - is ontologically false and liberalisms political values have directly caused social breakdown, financial crisis and foreign policy disasters. Dr Alan Sked, reader in modern history and international author, argued that religion has no role to play in politics and that liberalism guarantees individual rights and promotes tolerance.
