  Mongol invasion of Rus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Mongol Invasion of Russia was an invasion of the medieval state of Kievan Rus' by a large army of nomadic Mongols, starting in 1223.
As the story goes, at the news of the Mongol approach, the whole town of Kitezh with all its inhabitants was submerged into a lake, where, as legend has it, it may be seen to this day.
The influence of the Mongol invasion on the territories of Kievan Rus' was uneven.

 Mongol invasion of Europe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Mongol invasions of Europe were centered in their destruction of the Rus states, especially Kiev.
Subsequently they invaded Hungary and Poland, the former invasion commanded by Batu Khan, a grandson of Ghengis Khan, and the latter a diversion commanded by Kadu, also a grandson of Ghengis Khan, though both invasions were masterminded by Subutai, who also masterminded the Russian campaign.
Ironically, the European invasions were a third theater of operations, second to both the Middle East and Song China.

 The Islamic World to 1600: The Mongol Invasions (The Il-Khanate)
Although the faith prevailed, and the Mongol invaders were eventually converted to Islam, the Mongol destruction of the Islamic heartland marked a major change of direction for the region.
This spread of the native language and culture to the Mongol invaders is seen in the Il-Khanate as well as the Mongol-ruled Yuan Dynasty in China, both of which had rich cultural, linguistic, and religious traditions that pre-dated the Mongol invasion.
Their legacy was not easily forgotten, however, particularly in Persia, where the Mongol invasion had fuelled the age-old Persian nationalism that would eventually result in the formation of the powerful Safavid Empire there in the 16th century.

 Mongol Invasion of Europe in 1241
Terrible as the Mongol incursion into Poland was, it was merely a diversion to keep the Europeans from uniting to resist the conquest of the Mongols' primary objective--Hungary.
Mongol tactics resembled those of the hunter, who uses speed, finesse and deception to herd his prey where he will, then kill it with as little risk to himself as possible.
Mongol armies were made up entirely of cavalry, but the Mongol, in contrast to the European knight, depended primarily on his bow, and usually did not favor close-quarters combat on horseback.

 Pax Mongolica
To cite the apparent sharp decline in population in China during the Mongol period as proof of the Mongols' destructive impact is a huge oversimplification.
While it is tempting to blame the Mongols for the conditions which fostered the spread of the Black Death, which devastated cities as thoroughly as anything the Mongols did directly, that is a hard case to prove.
Mongol rule did bring with it initial destruction, the imposition of heavy financial burdens, and the loss of political independence, at the same time that it seeded political renewal in some areas and contributed selectively to economic expansion.

 Amir Butler » The Mongol Invasion of Iraq: Lessons Never Learned
It would, he assured the Mongols, be a cakewalk and within a short space of time the Mongol Empire could be extended into the previously impervious core of the Muslim Caliphate.
For this reason, when the Mongols sacked Baghdad and built human pyramids with the remains of the city’s scholars and poets, it was as though that brutality had been meted out on the entire Muslim world.
The Administration seems to be clumsily treading a path well worn by the Mongols – from the “human pyramids” to the modern-day Yasiq to the rise of religious fundamentalism in response to occupation excesses.

 The Mongol Invasion of Iraq: Lessons Never Learned - by Amir Butler
The Caliph wasn't going to be intimidated.  He refused the Mongol offer to surrender and decided to defend his city against their onslaught.
The Mongols understood what America is now learning: that the principle source of resistance to occupation of Muslim lands will always be religiously inspired.  Therefore, any effort to dilute or subvert the practice of Islam in the lands under occupation was seen by the Mongols as a pre-requisite to maintaining the occupation.
The reluctance of the Muslims to be satisfied with Mongol law presented a dilemma to their Mongol rulers.  As long as the population was denied that right of self-determination, including determination of the laws by which they are governed, the Mongols could not subdue the population completely.
