I would like to write Hebrew latex documents in emacs, but unfortunately the
Hebrew is reversed.

As a kludge you could type everything left to right and then apply this function to the whole buffer:

(defun reverse-bstring (str)
  (apply #'string (nreverse (string-to-list (buffer-string))))

There is something perverse about it since it doesn't seem to need to be passed a string but, anyway, evaluating it in *Scratch* produces this:

))))gnirts-reffub( tsil-ot-gnirts( esrevern( gnirts'# ylppa(
)rts( gnirtsb-esrever nufed(

..reffub nwo s'elif taht ni txet eht retne neht ;;
,f-C x-C htiw elif taht tisiv ,elif a etaerc ot tnaw uoy fI ;;
..noitaulave psiL rof dna ,evas ot tnaw t'nod uoy seton rof si reffub sihT ;;"


Of course you want to do this line by line, not to the whole buffer, since in Hebrew and Arabic you start at the back of the book but not at the bottom of the page. O well, back to the drawing board.
