mongols were a disaster for world especially iran, but holako khan was rescuer of iran for getting rid of abasid dynasty. he cooperated with khaje nasir toosi .khaje loathes arab leaders that govern iran. he encourages holako for toppling 500-year abbasid dinasty. we have ambivalent feelings about mongols. they destroyed our cities but one of them was rescuer for us from arab tyrany.
