The issue deals with the character set you defined on the mysql database/table.  The data seems  to be a UTF8.

Use the mysql migration tool.

UTF is the universal Transformation format
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UTF-8 


each language group arabic, chinese, cyrilic,eastern european, greek, hebrew, hindi, korean, japanese, etc. have a range within the UTF map where these characters are defined.
Such that instead of limiting the character sets that can be used to a specific one i.e. latin1, koi8-*,iso8859-x that matches the specific language, the UTF has all those character sets represented.UTF+060c starts the arabic punctuation and characters.

Open your windows character map, (start\accessories\system tools\character map) select the character set Unicode and then navigate through the definition of the font where you should reach the grouping of languages of interest to you.)
