 Armenian Revolutionary Federation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The ARF is considered the foremost organization in the Armenian Diaspora, having established numerous Armenian schools, churches, community centers, scouting and athletic groups, relief societies, youth organizations, camps, and other organizations throughout the world.
The ARF has always maintained its ideological commitment to "a Free, Independent, and United Armenia." The term United Armenia refers to the borders of Armenia that were recognized by U.S. President Woodrow Wilson and outlined in the Treaty of Sèvres.
The ARF held 9 of the 33 seats in the National Assembly of Nagorno-Karabakh, an ethnically and historically Armenian enclave in Azerbaijan that was transferred to Azerbaijan by Joseph Stalin in the 1920s, and liberated by Armenian forces in the 1990s.

 Justice Commandos against Armenian Genocide - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Justice Commandos against Armenian Genocide (JCAG) is a militant revolutionary organization that seeks to establish an independent and free Armenia and seeks recognition of the Armenian Genocide.
JCAG differs from the other major Armenian terrorist group, the Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Armenia (ASALA) in two important respects: First, JCAG is primarily nationalistic rather than Marxist-Leninist.
What little is known about the Armenian groups indicates that they were involved in factional disputes and internecine fighting since the mid-1980's, which has reduced their ability to assassinate more officials.

Armenian members of the former TARC say the study dealt a serious blow to Turkish denial of the genocide.
But the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (Dashnaktsutyun), a nationalist party represented in Armenia’s government and influential in the Diaspora, claims the opposite, arguing that the document in question also found that the UN genocide convention has no retroactive impact and therefore can not be used by the Armenians for demanding any compensation from Turkey.
Armenian leaders say the genocide is a proven fact which can not be a subject of debate.
