 Saddam Sounds Off: The Hulegu Speech
And because the people of Baghdad, I mean the rulers in it, were not quite prepared when the Mongols and Tatars invaded the territory of China, India, Persia and the surroundings, their invasion of Baghdad was in agreement of what history had described, and which later include Syria and the parts connected to it.
Hulegu's army has now come at this age to confront Baghdad after it has born anew with the sunrise, to record, with its new youth, a level of ascent which suits it well after it has abandoned its leading role for about seven hundred years.
Everyone in whose body the Hulegu's intent and action has settled down will commit suicide at the walls of Baghdad and Iraq towns, as was the case with those who died at the walls of Jenin and Palestinian towns.

 Hulegu Shall not Prevail Again   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Hulegu's furious thrust made quick work of the Assassin religious sect then controlling Persia, and he consequently turned his armies to the opulent Abbasid lands further west, in what is now Iraq.
Hulegu's army, powerful as it was, ultimately was crushed decisively in Syria by the Mamluks, a professional Turkish military dynasty in Egypt.
To grasp the source of this resistance, it is essential to realize that to Iraqi eyes, a modern Hulegu and his armies are preparing to sack and devastate the city and its people for the sake of conquest and aggrandizement alone.

It may be that indeed al-Tusi felt that he was being held in Alamut against his will, for certainly he seemed enthusiastic in joining the victorious Mongols who appointed him as their scientific advisor.

So, when al-Tusi presented Hulegu with plans for the construction of a fine Observatory, Hulegu was happy to agree.

Hulegu was very pleased with his conquest of Baghdad and also pleased that such an eminent scholar as al-Tusi had joined him.
