21 November 2012

Washington, Nov. 21 (ANI): Kim Kardashian is hoping to educate herself on the Middle East conflict after she was rebuked on social networks for commenting on the latest Israeli-Palestinian standoff.

According to sources, the 32-year-old socialite had initially agreed to a planned trip to make appearances at some Millions of Milkshakes shops opening in the two countries, TMZ.com reported.

However, after her recent Twitter controversy - centring around the Israeli-Palestinian conflict - the reality star has told her pals that she's determined to use the trip to learn about the political situation in the region.

"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," a source said.

Kardashian has reportedly set up meetings with local leaders in both the countries.

Over the weekend, she drew a backlash for tweeting, "Praying for everyone in Israel."

"Praying for everyone in Palestine and across the world!" she later tweeted

She later explained in a message that she wanted "to own up to and explain that earlier today I sent out two tweets about saying prayers for the people in Palestine and Israel and after hearing from my followers, I decided to take down the tweets because I realized that some people were offended and hurt by what I said, and for that I apologize, the New York Post reported.
