It occurs to me that this is pronounced in a very similar way to the Qu'ran. Thoughts? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 20:46, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
this is intentional. You have to remember that for most of the past few centuries of Western culture Muhammed has been seen not as a religious figure but as an historical "law maker". the Qu'ran was studied by some of the Founding Fathers as part of their legal education. People were of course aware of Islam the religion, but to Westerners the story of Muhammed was about him being the barer of civilisation to a previously unenlightened land, something Americans in particular related to (see, for example, the image of Muhammed on the Supreme Court building). So making this reference would have seemed perfectly natural, even for a racist. --188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:57, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
