Through the years quite a number of people writing about Mormonism have noted similarities between Islam and the LDS Church. As early as 1831 critics of Joseph Smith compared him to Muhammad. Smith himself was known to make the same comparison. In the midst of the so-called “Mormon War” of 1838 Joseph defied his enemies by declaring: “I will be to this generation a second Mohammed, whose motto in treating for peace was ‘the Alcoran [Koran] or the Sword.’ So shall it eventually be with us — ‘Joseph Smith or the Sword!’ ”
