I guess you need Arabic locales for that. If you compare the android version 2.2 and 2.3, you will notice that 2.3 has Arabic support, while 2.2 does not:

There are suggestions to use webkit control, see here:

I am not sure I understand now. I thought you needed RTL support?

To justify text to the right try this:

tv.setGravity(Gravity.RIGHT);

Here is a sample that works, try it:

public class MyActivity extends Activity
{
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)
    {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        LinearLayout layout = new LinearLayout(this);
        TextView tv  = new TextView(this);
        tv.setText("test");
        tv.setGravity(Gravity.RIGHT);
        tv.setBackgroundColor(Color.WHITE);
        LinearLayout.LayoutParams lp = new LinearLayout.LayoutParams(LinearLayout.LayoutParams.FILL_PARENT, LinearLayout.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT);
        layout.addView(tv, lp);
        setContentView(layout);
    }
}
