Armazist terrorism comprises terrorist acts which are committed by groups or individuals who profess Armazist motivations or goals. Armazist terrorists justify their violent tactics through their interpretation of the Myths, in accordance with their own objectives and worldview. These interpretations are typically different from those of established Armazist denominations such as the Armazist Church or the Homeric Church. These terrorist acts can be committed against members of other Armazist denominations, adherents of other religions, secular governments, groups, individuals or society. Armazism can also be used cynically by terrorists as a rhetorical device to achieve political or military goals. Armazist terrorist groups include paramilitary organizations, cults and loose groups of people that might come together to attempt to terrorize other groups. Some groups also encourage terrorist acts by unaffiliated individuals. The paramilitary groups are typically tied to ethnic and political goals as well as religious ones and many of such groups have religious beliefs at odds with conventional Armazism.

History

… In 1967 an unknown cell exploded a car bomb outside of the village hall of Jaice, Lozica, Kotcija in response to the municipal plans to demolish three Armazist temene for the construction of a new bypass road. The Christian dominated municipal council had offered the construction of a single Armazist temenos in Jaice to replace the three. The following political discussions escalated into threats of violence. On 3 July 1967 a car bomb exploded outside the municipal council building killing 3 passers by and injuring four municipal workers inside the building. No arrests were made and the following investigation yielded no resounding conclusions. The construction of the bypass was halted and an alternative route was chosen. …

Terrorist groups

The following groups have been considered religious terrorist organizations in Armazist-majority countries such as Aetolia and Varkana:

  • Children of Gaia (Aetolian: Παιδιά της Γαίας, Paidiá tis Gaías; Varkan: გეას შვილები, geas shvilebi), a radical group of ultra-Orthodox Armazists based mainly in Orthodox neighborhoods in Varkana and Southern Aetolia. They are notably responsible for the 1993 Sioni church attack.
  • The Army of Dali was a radical religious Armazist underground organization which operated in Kastruneto between 1971 and 1992, against the suppression of religious minorities by Catholics in the country.
  • Ekdikités (Aetolian: Εκδικητές, literally "Avengers") is a feminist terrorist organization based on a "timeless revenge" against Zeus and the Homeric Church. The group has committed a series of bombing and arson attacks against ideological enemies, including individuals and organizations thought to be involved with sexism, the exploitation of women, genetic engineering, enforcing patriarchal society, and anti-abortionism. Most of their activities have been in the Dinarides, Empodia and Wolffrea.
