Warring Middle Eastern Countries to appear on Survivor.

Can Reality TV finally help solve an ongoing world conflict? Wouldn't you watch a Survivor Special featuring groups representing Hezballah, Hamas, Israel, and maybe even Al Queda?

You probably think I'm joking, yet I'm couldn't be more serious. Think of the benefits. Rather than simply hear about the everyday bombings and threats of violence that are always attached to the usual suspects, we get to really know these different factions on a level never witnessed before.

Survior has been known to depart from the first season formula that many other reality television shows have since emulated and with that in mind, I don't believe anyone would need to be sent off the show on a weekly basis, instead the point would be get to know all four groups over the course of a full season's worth of shows.

Isn't it time to get a different perspective on different groups of people that for the most part are only known to the industrialized world as being warriors?

Wouldn't it be great if a reality television show for once could actually help put a spotlight on a divisive situation and perhaps help heal an unending toxic situation?

The world awaits "Survivor and the Middle East".
