Recent changes by the Iraqi Central Bank of Iraq have dramatically increased the demand for Iraqi Dinar(IQD). This increased demand has put a strain on our international supply chain. The situation has directly affected our ability to process orders for this currency in a timely manner. We apologize for any inconvenience. We would like you to know that we will ship all orders on a first come, first serve basis. Also please know that because of the exchange rate change (and subsequent increase in demand) that our rates are subject to change at any time until you have paid. Once again, this situation involves only the Iraqi Dinar. We want you to know that we are doing everything we can to keep orders flowing and that we appreciate your business and your patience.

Malaysian leader urges Iraqis to embark on new era of unity

Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has urged Iraqis to embark on a new era of reconciliation following the execution of their former president, Saddam Hussein.

"I hope that the present Iraqi government will be guided by the principles of justice and fairness in matters of governance, ensuring that all Iraqis are treated equally and with dignity," Abdullah said in a statement released Saturday night by the national news agency Bernama.

Abdullah, who chairs the 57-member Organization of the Islamic Conference, the world's largest Islamic political grouping, said Saddam's execution on Saturday must not result in a prolonging of sectarian violence "that has prevented any meaningful nation building or reconstruction from taking place."

He said Iraqis should be allowed to determine for themselves how to bring back peace and stability to their country, and urged the international community to help them in all appropriate ways.

Foreign Minister Syed Hamid Albar told Bernama that Malaysia respected the right of the Iraqi government and people to determine Saddam's fate.

But he warned that the execution may result in more violence as well as hatred against the West, which some Iraqis regard as responsible for ordering the hanging.

Syed Hamid said many in the international community were critical of the trial proceedings against Saddam for his role in the killings of 148 Shiite Muslims from a town where assassins tried to kill him in 1982.

"It appeared as though there was intervention from the government in the judicial process, as though a decision had been made before the verdict was passed," he said.

Foreign Ministry officials could not be reached Sunday for comment.

Malaysia opposed the U.S.-led war in Iraq, but maintains good ties with Washington.
