Syria is actually a pretty bad example of a country that implemented a strong censorship against the internet usage of the citizens. Syria has a record of banning all those websites that announces any political opinion not favorable to the government or the authority. And the government of the country has even arrested the people who visited the websites that have been banned by the government.
