Hi Slim,

Currently, RTL languages are not supported in the OnDemand environment, and neither is the inclusion of external plugins. There's an improvement request regarding this feature at:

There you'll see a workaround for standalone instances (not supported in OnDemand), by creating a user macro to insert blocks of RTL text within your content.

Hope it helps.
