Away from all speculations, the Sumero-Akkadian culture is the Heritage of the people of todays Iraq and Arabian including the Levant and the Arabian peninsula, the homeland of the Akkadian.
Even before the first millennium, the Arabs lived in Mesopotamian and the Syrian Jazeera. From the 8th century BC, the Assyrians and Babylonians recorded Arabs living (every where) in eastern Mesopotamia between the Tigris and Iran, settled in large numbers in Babylonia, in the Syrian Jazira, on the slopes Of the Anti-Lebanon mountains, in north and north-west Arabia, and in Sinai.
Akkadian is a Peninsulan language (Related to the mother tongue of the Arabian Peninsula; similar to Arabic, Aramaic and Hebrew etc.); as the word semitic is misleading, wrong in origin and is misused politically. There is neither a Semitic language nor people descended from the so called Shem, a fictional son of a virtual Noah adopted in plagiarism from Sumerian-Akkadian Religion known since about BCE 4000.
