This article approaches, as an introduction, a history of Jewish religious terrorism from the birth of the State of Israel to the present day. Focusing exclusively on this phenomenon, it lists and describes chronologically the different Jewish religious terrorist groups that have acted in Israel, each in a given context. From the first group called the Brit Hakanaim to Bat Ayin, this phenomenon has caused a number of victims - far fewer than Arab terrorism - most of them Palestinians and Israeli Arabs, although there have also been casualties among the Israeli Jewish population. The current paper states the so-called political messianic as the ideological substrate and the intellectual basis of this phenomenon. It briefly describes some of the measures that the State of Israel has taken to combat this autochthonous terrorism. As a conclusion, a picture of Jewish religious terrorism is made, in comparison with other similar phenomena.
