Believe it or not Syria came in as one of Lonely Planet's top 10 best value destinations for 2011.

To be fair LP has more recently introduced this Travel advisory

Note that since March 2011, there’s been a surge in violence in Syria due to an uprising against the government and subsequent crackdowns. Many countries are advising their citizens against travel to the country. Check the latest news before heading to Syria.)

Probably one of the reasons why they don't have any flotillas or flytillas going to Syria to protest the carnage although I suspect that the so-called "activists" who do those sorts of things wouoldn't go there and get in your face with the Assad family.

It's much safer to fly into Israel and have a beer at a bar in Tel Aviv when you're not hyperventilating around a fence or pestering Israeli soldiers.
