I don't understand what you try to describe. By experimenting I found  
that all text can stay black and that the accents are lost when I  
change a bit your example. The way you select a colour is OK, and it  
was found that the usual LaTeX colour packages don't work correctly  
in a right to left writing environment.

By experimenting I found that when I add your "external" text inside  
the tabularx environment, no matter whether on the one line or as  
additional lines, the "accents" go away. And when I exchange the  
coloured line with one of the two others, then no colour is  
established outside the tabularx environment. But the colour returns  
when I put one of the two other lines as substitute into the tabularx  
environment – now no "accents" are visible!

IMO opinion it has to do with arabxetex.
