Kim Kardashian

Education in the

Middle East

1119-kim-kardashian-middle-east-tmz
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.

I'm reading this sitting in my kitchen in Israel. Someone should tell the Kardashian Family that if any of them come to Israel, they will get their passport stamped with an Israeli border control stamp. That means that they will become ineligible to enter most Gulf State Nations. That ought to keep them out.

So she now admits she knows nothing about the region, making her tweets last week totally uninformed...there's a surprise. She is going to a stable part of the Middle East just to pick up bags of cash and that's all. I call B.S. on the rest.

I hope she winds up getting kidnapped. The U.S. won't negotiate with terrorists y'know. Bye, bye, Kim!

The Middle Eastern men are going to love KK and I'm sure many of the men are going to want her as another wife.
