It works!
I am not sure why a percent sign not a space but it _almost_ work.
If I understand you properly, I made a small file in lyx and exported it to 
TeX. I edited the file by adding the percent before the "\end{center}"

[munzir at localhost Desktop]$ cat percent2.tex
%% LyX 1.3 created this file.  For more info, see http://www.lyx.org/.
%% Do not edit unless you really know what you are doing.

\usepackage{arabtex,iso88596} \setcode{iso8859-6}

[munzir at localhost Desktop]$ texi2pdf percent2.tex
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-1.10b (Web2C 7.4.5)

In spite of the errors you can see here, the generated pdf file is a really 
nice one with nothing wrong in it. I am happy there is still a hope. What do 
you suggest now?
