Kim Kardashian

Education in the

Middle East

Kim Kardashian is about to embark on a whirlwind trip to Kuwait and Bahrain ... and TMZ has learned she's hoping to educate herself on the Middle East crisis while she's in town.

Sources close to Kim tell us ... KK initially agreed to the trip to make appearances at some Millions of Milkshakes shops opening in the two countries.

But after her recent Twitter controversy -- centered around the Israeli-Palestinian conflict -- Kim is telling friends she's determined to use the trip to educate herself about the political situation in the region.

As one source puts it, "Kim wants to be as informed as possible ... so she can use her celebrity to help those in need and raise awareness about important issues in the area."

We're told Kim -- who will be under the constant protection of a private security squad -- has already set up meetings in both countries with local leaders.

Kim Kardashian -- putting the ass in ambassador.

Why are we blaming her? She was looking for fame - as it is the case for many insecure people - and she got it. And guess who made her a famous trash? THE MEDIA. So blame the despicable media that is brainwashing us 24/7.

Going to Kuwait and Bahrain to get educated about Israel and the Palestinians? It's like going to Thailand to find out what's going on in North Korea...She should go to Israel and talk to the people who have lived under Hamas rockets and missiles for six years. Talk to kids who play every day in bomb shelters.

No wonder this (un-)wonder woman can't think: no room for a brain; she's too full of HERSELF. And since she's too stupid to stop embarrassing herself in public, what on EARTH did her parents ever teach her?

Kim is as dumb as a stump. She's not going to learn anything about the region or their politics. This is nothing more than a publicity stunt. If she was so concerned about this troubled part of the world, she would have looked into it long before her controversial "tweet" statement. This is "damage control" and nothing more.
