I played a bit around with that

(put-char-code-property ?\\ 'bidi-class 'L)

(I am not sure whether to use L or LRO.)

That works as expected, that is in latex buffer the backslash behaves
now as I expect him to behave.

Hm I could write a small hack to change back and forward between 'L and

I have set this always to t[1]. But my problem with writing Hebrew when
bidi-paragraph-direction is set to left, is:

    -  first the cursor sits fixed and spits the hebrew chars, which I
       find counter intuitive  

    -  worse:  beginning-of-line and end-of-line are confusing in this

Anyhow thanks for the hint
with (put-char-code-property ?\\ 'bidi-class 'L)

     you finally implemented visual-order-cursor-movement :-D
