This is by design, and can only be fixed by a radical change in the
Emacs display engine and how the bidirectional text is rendered by it
(the reordering needs to be done _after_ a line of text is rendered
for display).

As a workaround, either use hard newlines, to make your lines shorter
than the window width, or set bidi-paragraph-direction in that buffer
to right-to-left (or nil, if some of the paragraphs in that Org buffer
use a predominantly LTR script).
