This should do. I also include commented statements for the 
startnarrower issue.

    \setupdirections [bidi=on,method=two]
    %\setupdirections [bidi=on]
    Now, a quote block starting just there, \startbloccitel
    \input tufte
    \stopbloccitel . This a bit of text at the end of the quotation.
