Arab Today, arab today Australians tiptoe through Daesh territory for TV show

Australian reality-TV show
Sydney - UPI

An Australian reality-TV show called Go Back to Where You Came From is known for sending its contestants on dangerous expeditions in order to make a statement against Australia's very harsh asylum policy.

But a trailer released of the show's upcoming third season reveals the program may have gone too far in trying to get its point across.

The video shows three contestants tiptoeing through a Syrian war zone located just past the border of Iraq into the battle ridden country. Upon their arrival to an abandoned village, a gun battle erupted between militants and ISIS.

A voice calls out "They're coming toward us," and the group, including the crew members, are rushed behind a brick wall, wearing nothing more than Kevlar vests, while IS approach from less than a mile away.

"The show is a three-part reality series aimed at sparking a conversation on immigration by sending six Australians to see refugee conditions in person," The Global Post reported.

The program idea is to show those who may support the current Australian asylum policy what displaced immigrants go through when forced out of their land because of war. Participants have gone through jungles, experienced simulated immigration raids and even traveled across seas in leaking refugee boats.

Many have criticized the show's producers for their radical actions and experiments, their latest put dropping citizens in the mist of a heated gun battle between IS may be the the worst of it.

One of the contestants, Kim Vuga, who was in favor if Australia's policy, even hosting a Facebook page entitled "Stop The Boat People," said being on the show actually strengthened her previous convictions.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Vuga said she felt guilty leaving Kurdish fighters, those willing to defend against terrorists, behind. Though her eyes were opened in seeing refugee and fighter conditions, she says being on the show actually strengthened her previous convictions.

"I believe we need to have more boots on the ground over there," Vuga said.
