The Middle East is in turmoil, but the answer to all its problems will be arriving soon. Kim Kardashian is flying out to the Middle East to solve the conflict open some stores.

The reality TV star is heading off for promotional appearances in Kuwait and Bahrain— her Millions of Milkshakes stores are opening in each country, respectively— and according to reports, she plans to educate herself on the Middle East while she’s there.

This, because over the weekend she angered both Israelis and Palestinians.

“Praying for everyone in Israel,” she tweeted. Later, not looking to leave anyone out, she wrote, “Praying for everyone in Palestine and across the world!”

But fans on Twitter and Facebook weren’t feeling how she was originally trying to take sides then make it seem like she had everyone’s best wishes in her heart. So she deleted the tweets.

“I want to own up to and explain that earlier today I sent out two tweets about saying prayers for the people in Palestine and Israel,” she wrote in a statement. “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.”

And now she’s off to the Middle East to learn all about why everyone got so pissed off.
