Proto-Arabic language

Proto-Arabic is the name given to the hypothetical reconstructed ancestor of all the varieties of Arabic attested since the 9th century BC. There are two lines of evidence to reconstruct Proto-Arabic: Evidence of Arabic becomes more frequent in the 2nd century BC, with the documentation of Arabic names in the Nabataean script as well as evidence of an Arabic substratum in the Nabataean language; the Safaitic and Hismaic inscriptions were composed between the 1st century BC and the 4th century AD, in the basalt desert of the northwest Arabian Peninsula and the Southern Levant. They are crucial to the reconstruction of Proto-Arabic, since they show many features that are shared by epigraphic Old South Arabian and Classical Arabic; the common features set them apart from languages that are documented further south, such as Dadanitic and Taymanitic. Old Arabic in the Nabataean script is first attested in the Negev desert in the 1st century BC, but it becomes more frequent in the region after the decline of Safaitic and Hismaic.

From the 4th century AD, Old Arabic inscriptions are attested from Northern Syria to the Hejaz, in a script, intermediate between cursive Nabataean and the Kufic script of Islamic times. The urheimat of Proto-Arabic can thus be regarded as the frontier between northwest Arabia and the southern Levant. There are several features shared by Classical Arabic, the varieties of Modern Arabic and the Safaitic and Hismaic inscriptions that are unattested in any other Semitic language variety, including the Dadanitic and Taymanitic languages of the northern Hejaz, they are evidence of common descent from Proto-Arabic. The following features can be reconstructed with confidence for Proto-Arabic: negative particles m */mā/.

Considering themselves an "underground" or subversive group, La Rumeur has refused to adapt their lyrics for radio, they select the media outlets with which they communicate, shunning the popular press and radio. Concerts and word of mouth are their main means of promotion. La Rumeur and the group Anfalsh are close, having written and performed several songs together, they have worked with politically involved hip hop crews such as Assassin, Less' du Neuf, hardcore rappers Sheryo and Casey. La Rumeur has involved itself in political activism in the suburbs of France, calling for attention to be paid to the often-ignored Paris massacre of 1961, as well as to police abuse, including "accidental" killings of young French people; the band is critical of reformist NGOs such as SOS Racisme, expressed political views through the magazines that came with their records, which are now in the form of webzines.

Hamé wrote: "... through organizations such as SOS Racisme, created by the PS to contribute to the destruction of the Marche des beurs radicalism. Justice for those assassinated by the police is overshadowed by massive slogans such as "Hands off my pal!" and "Long live miscegenation!", etc.... La Rumeur is closer to NGOs such as the MIB. In May 2008, La Rumeur performed in Minneapolis as guests of Ursus Minor at the Triple Rock Social Club during the Minnesota Sur Seine festival. Despite two court orders in their favor, they have been targeted relentlessly in a lawsuit by Nicolas Sarkozy, the French Minister of the Interior, related to an article written by Hamé, they won this legal battle after a succession of trials and 8 years of long process.
