If you have no interest in discussing what he wishes (quite vehemently, it would appear), then might I suggest the Ignore button?
He makes pacts with the devil, but then he doesn't want to talk about it.
I've heard and read that the devil can be your best friend, but he will want your soul in exchange. Bad things can happen if you don't relinquish your soul when the devil comes looking for it. (Somehow musicians, especially violinists, manage to escape this fate. It's a great mystery.)
I'm not convinced that BM fully comprehends the dangers of such exchanges with the devil.
A True Warrior needs to know the risks, as well as the rewards. He would be well advised to look at the History of advanced cultures with long experience in war and with making such pacts with the devil.

But back home in Israel, his hopes of trading gold wedding bands with his longtime girlfriend seem to be an impossible dream.
You should repost this in my "Family Values" thread.
A long time ago, my wife lost her wedding ring. She was very sad about it, but every time she mentioned it, she would end it with, "but it isn't real gold". Now, some folks might be offended, but it's really just a reflection of her culture and her history and her identity. She's a bit of a gold snob, because she used to wash gold with her mother to buy candles with in El Bordo so she could read at night.
She eventually found it, and she was very happy, but of course, she felt the need to point out that it wasn't real gold.
My wife assures me that the pair of wedding rings being made in the opening scenes of this video documentary are made out of real gold. I generally take her word for it when it comes to gold.
Danza Colombia: Trayecto Pacífico - 2. Cuerpo
Este capítulo narra cómo los ancestros de los afrocolombianos soportaron los vejámenes y torturas propias de la esclavitud. Cuenta que a través de la danza sus cuerpos recibieron el aliento que necesitaban para no morir explotando la mina en busca del oro que querían sus amos. Y mientras recapitulamos información desconocida sobre este pasado reconocemos danzas que revelan esta tradición del cuidado del cuerpo y la conciencia del mismo, como el abozao, levantapolvo, fox trot, expresiones libres como los revulús en las fiestas de San Pacho y danzas de laboreo como la Batea.

Danza Colombia: Pacific Journey - 2. Body
This chapter narrates how the ancestors of the Afro-Colombians endured the humiliations and tortures of slavery. It tells how through dance their bodies received the encouragement they needed to not die exploiting the mine in search of the gold their masters wanted. And while we recapitulate unknown information about this past, we recognize dances that reveal this tradition of body care and body awareness, such as the abozao, levantapolvo, fox trot, free expressions such as the revulús in the festivities of San Pacho and labor dances such as the Batea.
You are Jewish if your Mother is Jewish or you have converted to Judaism via the Orthodox route , the lads Mother is NOT Jewish which under Religious law means he is not Jewish , his Father is Jewish .
OK, so he's not a Fundamentalist like you.
Then again, neither is Jon Ossoff, Georgia's First Jewish US Senator.
There is currently a large hullabaloo about the lad but I doubt that will change much
From the article:
"A 2019 survey by the Israel Democracy Institute found that almost 60% of Israeli Jews support civil marriage."
Jenifer (Zarknorph) said...He is pestering you, but has not been abusive, profane or cruel.
Speaking of abusive and cruel, I really need to get back to posting some history. BM doesn't even know the meaning of the words abusive and cruel. My wife's ancestors were amoung the most barbaric, cruel and salvage cultures when it comes to warfare in the entire history of Colombia. (And they've had some pretty stiff competition over the last 500 years.)
BM really needs to read some history. I spent most of yesterday typing out some history in response to a post by Lucidade. Maybe I'll crosspost it to my Bolívar thread.
(What the hell does profane mean, anyway?)
We all live in a multicultural world, and everybody's got their traditions.
In some cultures, when you get married, they hit you upside the head with a broom and play the Violin.
What is it that you have against multiculturalism, anyway?

The days of the Nomad in Israel are over
Thank you for your input.
It's always good to get the opinions of white male Brits regarding multiculturalism in foreign lands.
I live in Israel have done for 44 years .
If you have anything to say which adds up to anything more than your usual shite go ahead , if not dont bother
Look, I understand that you see yourself as a great Warrior. But somehow you've become unballanced.
This dude saw himself as a great Warrior, as well. He made a pact with the devil, and exchanged his soul for an Uzi, which he passed on to a little 9 year old girl who scored a head shot on her very first try. Instant karma. Dude was playing with forces he didn't understand. He lost his ballance. He was no Warrior. A True Warrior needs to be conscious of the forces that she or he is playing with.

This is what a True Warrior looks like:
ESPEJO RETROVISOR - BAMBUCO PATIANO
...or you have converted to Judaism via the Orthodox route
Can he do this?
Of course he can covert to Judaism correctly , his problem (I am just guessing this ) is that via the Orthodox route takes time and it takes time deliberately to make sure the convert is sincere .
The other conversion routes via (as an example) Liberal or Reform Judaism are MUCH quicker but the problem he would have is that they are not recognized (yet) in Israel as being acceptable .
His options are to get married in Cyprus in a civil ceremony then come back to Israel , register the marriage which is then legally accepted under civil law but not Religious and in his case as the Women is Jewish then their Kids will be Jewish with no questions asked .
