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.

Just like when she went to Haiti to help out and staged in a posh hotel, and wanted to adopt a baby, do you think any leaders would actually sit down with her? Ummm no. Maybe leaders of the shopping mall!

She is the last person on earth to be educating anyone! Wish the KarTRASHians would go away.

eww she looks like an ugly Armenian wannabe MILF from Glendale California. She is not aging nicely and she will definitely never get a spot in TMZ's Good Genes or Good Docs section. *BARF

OMG. Is she also geographically incapable of allocating the "Middle East" to "educate" herself? I LIVED in Kuwait for 20 years and it is in a region called "Persian Gulf" The "Middle East" which is btw grammatically unsound since technically there is no Middle East from a global point of view, relates to nations that include Jordan, Lebanon, (Where I am from), Syria, Israel, Palestine. If she wants to learn, firstly, pick up a book and know your countries, second, go to Israel, visit refugee camps, read books published by distinguished award recipients that have lived through wars. I was so busy dodging bullets and bloodshed in Lebanon, yet I still managed to LEARN. It aggravates me that once "celebrities" become famous based on the occasional sex tape, they suddenly assume they can make a difference by pretending to care about vital issues, when really if you throw Kim K in a situation where she can't wear a Gucci dress and be in full blown make-up, she will probably die of shallow frustration. The world is a very sad place.

She is pretty dumb but not dumb when it comes to making a buck by whoring herself in every way. You can bet she getting paid to do this. And the only thing she will learn from the trip is what her paycheck requires her to understand.
