I do not think that there is any indeterminancy or
ambiguity in this matter as long as one appreciates
that Jews are Jews and Copts are Copts.  The
construction of the sentence is entirely clear.  On
the same day Nessim sees a treatise or whatever by
Balthazar in a shop window and chances to see
Balthazar's father's grave -- that is the significant
set of circumstances.  Nor is Leila Jewish.  

I do not think that Durrell is hinting at anything
