Hi Jonathan
I did
yum groupinstall "Arabic Support"
Setting up Group Process
Package fonts-arabic - 2.0-5.fc7.noarch already installed and latest version
Package aspell-ar - 1.2-2.fc7.i386 already installed and latest version
Package - 1:2.3.0-6.4.fc7.i386 already installed and latest version
No packages in any requested group available to install or update

but the problem did not solved yet , I think it is font issue
