Perhaps the problem is the number of Mosques compared to the number of "Moslems". Mosques are not just a place where the faithful go to pray. Mosques are the cultural and social center of Moslem life, therefor "Islamic" activities. Money exchanges hands, decisions made regarding the future courses of action, and meetings held.

A Mosque may only have 10 or 20 members, yet still be a Mosque. Are they open to all, may anyone attend, if not why not? what is the ideology of the Mosques, is it the overthrow of the US Constitution, establishment of an Islamic State? where do they get their money? Are they supported by a foreign governmental power? Do they have an agenda?
