It didn't work. The text was displayed left-to-right on my KT.
I hope that with epub3 now starting to be supported, right-to-left will also be supported soon.
I thought EPUB(2?) standard already supported options to specify right-to-left as well as left-to-right layouts. OTOH, I suspect rendering Arabic would also require CTL issues to be addressed to support context sensitive transformations.
