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 » 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.

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

As it should be.

I attended the largest mosque in New England.

We have a outreach program with the Christian and Jewish community. Sometimes the meetings are held inside of our mosque. Other times we go to their churches and synagogues.

Also, we hold voter participation drives inside our mosque with our membership. And believe that all Muslims should vote and participate in the democratic process.

Last year we hosted an event where the Governor of our state gave a speech to approximately 1000 of our members.

A while back we had a law enforcement job recruiting fair inside of our mosque. The local police, sheriffs Department, FBI, TSA, and homeland security set up recruiting tables.

One of the offices in our mosque is staffed by a Muslim woman who runs a battered woman's shelter for both Muslims and non-Muslims. But it is totally funded by the Islamic community in our city.

The largest Christian denomination in the world is the Catholic Church. Which does not grant membership to gays and lesbians. We are no different than them.

I believe this address all of the OP's concerns and accusations.
