How safe is Syria for tourists?

edited October 2010 in Middle East
I want to know if Syria is safe for a small group of western tourists, visiting on their own steam to explore the country. I have heard the Damascus especially is a very friendly and multicultural place, that is not hostile to westerners. Is this true? Are there any other dangers we should be aware of?

    Qwerty2 - Syria is an extremely safe country. Foreigners and tourists are welcomed there. Damascus is a wondrous city and can take days to explore. Like any other destination you should always be aware of your surroundings and make sure your personal items such as money, passport etc are in a safe place!
