    Seriously, I am looking for a Mosque where are being preached:

    1. Tolerance to Jews, Israel, Gays and non-Muslims
    2. Respect to the Western Democracy, Constitution and Political System
    3. Respect to Womans
    4. Instigation to better Integration or Assimilation.
    5. Moderate Democratic Islam

    Maybe somebody can help, thanks in advance.

    Here's one:

    South Bay Islamic Association ยป Mission Statement

    There are actually many moderate-to-liberal Muslim groups in the U.S. Just look around with an open mind.

    I met a young Muslim man hanging out with and working with a local Christian charity, helping to feed the poor, wearing an "I Love Jesus" T-Shirt. (That by the way is not a violation of anything in Islam, which teaches that Jesus was a Prophet of God and to be revered.)

    This kind of thing is very much a part of Muslim belief. The question is whether and to what extent it is emphasized. In the U.S., it tends to be. In some foreign countries, alas, not so much. But the difference is cultural, not religious.

    You will never find a mosque that accepts gays.

    I don't know too much about sufis but no mosque I have ever seen will EVER accept an openly gay man or Lesbian.

    There are several mosques here in Greenpoint. Very close to Synagogues and Churches.

    As it should be.
