Kim Kardashian Israel: Reality Star Weighs In On The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict (UPDATE)

Just call her Switzerland.

Kim Kardashian is apparently neutral when it comes to the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The reality star first tweeted support for Israel:

"Praying for everyone in Israel," she wrote. And after five minutes of backlash, the star tweeted again:

"And praying for everyone in Palestine and across the world!" she wrote.

Kim Kardashian is clearly the last person anyone wanted to hear from regarding the issue, and the 32-year-old was immediately hit with more backlash over the tweets -- including death threats.

The star has since deleted the tweets and gone back to tweeting about her special holiday trunk sale. Good choice, Kim.

UPDATE: In a blog post on her website, Kim Kardashian decided to explain her reasons for tweeting about the conflict and why 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 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. I should have pointed out my intentions behind these tweets when I posted them. The fact is that regardless of religion and political beliefs, there are countless innocent people involved who didnt choose this, and I pray for all of them and also for a resolution. I also pray for all the other people around the world who are caught in similar crossfires.
