Kach is a hard-line Israeli militant group that advocates for the expulsion of Arabs from the biblical lands of Israel.
The U.S. State Department listed it as a terrorist organization in 1994. Kach, as well as the splinter group Kahane Chai, condones violence as a viable method for establishing a religiously homogenous state.
The group has not staged a large terrorist attack since 1994, although people affiliated with the groups have been arrested for “low-level attacks” since 2000, according to the State Department’s 2006 Country Report.
In 2006 a U.S. Federal Court upheld that Kach was rightly listed as a terrorist organization in an appeal.
