Remove the language="fr" attribute from <fo:table/>. The presence of the
language attribute is to override the font table processing, effectively
telling FOP to use the French language tables that apply to all text under
fo:table. But there are no French language tables for the font for Arabic
script content.

Also, you may wish to specify writing-mode="rtl" on either fo:page-sequence
of fo:table (as desired), in which case  you do not need to specify
