A few points to consider:
    * The Hebrew in the screen shot is all mangled. Some of the text
      appears correctly, and some is not reversed, resulting in an image
      that is fairly far from readable.
    * The best place I know of to find Arabic speaking FOSS related
      activity is project Arabeyes - Sadly, it
      appears that the project is fairly inactive for some time now.
Good luck

I know window titles are reversed because of the incoherency of SWT controls - I'll just reverse the words in the dictionary ;), but I think the short words inside the window are perfectly readable. Which part do you fail to read? Having a label to the right or to the left of the drop-down is very important in Hebrew?
