eww defaults `bidi-paragraph-direction' to `left-to-right', and depends
on web pages including the "dir" attribute to <HTML> to change that.
The Al Jazeera web site doesn't do that, so things look wrong.

Is there a simple heuristic we could use to determine that we're on a
page where we should flip the paragraph direction?  Some pages may have
a bit of RTL text without wanting to change the paragraph direction
(like most Wikipedia pages)...
