Attacks by Turkish hackers on sites criticizing Islam and Turkey have been common since 9/11. This paper aims to identify and classify the thematic concerns of the kind of attacks by these hackers. The hackers work in groups in their defacing i.e. changing the appearance of the site. They have patriot names like Ayyıldız team or Bozkurts. Their actions have been so far ignited by Turkish-Greek relations, on the news of Turkish soldiers' deaths, Mavi Marmara Incident to Danish caricature crisis. The damage they do is not financial but for their universal message of brotherhood. Hence, a new definition of cyber terror, that of aktivist discursive hacking is needed to identify the concerns of these attacks.
