Not sure where they got from the listing that it was considered Islamic. It only calls it an amulet from Egypt.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Department
Islamic Art (15,291)

Though that department contains many more items that are obviously not Islamic.

Is he? The article doesn't say anything about how much they settled for.

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

What are the chances that Lewis's family asked him not to come? Or that him coming would make a scene that would distract from the memory of Lewis rather than respect it?

I found the following so fascinating that I thought it should be posted here rather than in the tweets thread.

Beirut's only synagogue still standing after blast
Beirut synagogue appears to suffer only minor damage from deadly blast.

Quote
A photograph said to be of Beirutís only synagogue shows minor damage to the interior of the 95-year-old building from a blast this week in the city.

The image of the Maghen Abraham Synagogue appeared Thursday on the page of a Facebook group called the Lebanese Jewish Community Council. Across the image are the words, "Maghen Abraham after the explosion in the Beirut port." Lebanon has no organized Jewish community and very few Jewish residents, if any.

More than 150 people died in the blast, which authorities initially said occurred at a storage facility for ammonium nitrate. But President Michel Aoun on Friday said the possibility of "foreign intervention" is also being examined.

The blast obliterated some buildings and heavily damaged thousands more, rendering about 300,000 people homeless, according to The Daily Star.

The photo shows some debris and dust on the floor of the synagogue and on plastic sheets covering the pews. The walls show no cracks and itís not clear whether the glass windows were shattered, but the frames seem to be in place.

The blast occurred on Tuesday about a mile west of the synagogue, which is adjacent to the Grand Serail government palace. That building sustained more significant damage, including doors that were torn from their hinges.

Initial reports on social media spoke of heavy damage to the synagogue as well, and some even said it had been destroyed.

The synagogue reopened last year following extensive renovations.
