AbstractIn the Turkish political arena, and since the 1960s, where the military establishment tightened its grip on power following the coup of May 1960, many extremist organizations have varied affiliations between the Left and Right of the nationalist, Islamic and secular movements, and continued to the nineties and the emergence of the concepts of the deep state. With the beginning of the twenty-first century when the Justice the Development Party took over the power in 2002 and its adoption of reforming that lead to ending the role of the military institution in political life, which prompted it to take positions rejecting the Islamists' handover of power, secretly and publicly.
Since 2011, the Turkish media began highlighting a new secret cell that bore the name of the Turkish Revenge Union formations as an ultra-nationalist radical organization. The formation believes in armed action as the only way to reach its goals of reviving Ataturk's legacy; and taking back Turkey to the era of its revival and power- the period of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk's rule.
The importance of the research lies in trying to address the organization's links, roots, establishment, ideology, goals, activities, and internal and external positions.
