    Syria left the internet, and nothing of value went with it.

    Syria came back, and pretty much nothing of value came back with it

    Think not of what you do for the internet, but what the internet does for you.

    Sure, there might not be smash hit websites hosted in Syria, but considering that many people in Syria use the internet no differently to Europeans or Americans (or Canadians like yourself) and it is part of their daily lives, you should be happy for them that it is back. Rather than trying to work out the value that a person puts into the internet, why don't you try to see what value the internet makes to their lives, their freedoms and their quality of life.
