The road to hell is paved with good intentions and if the news report I came across on the Guardian today is true, then one 19 year old Syrian bloggeress is in a world of hurt right now. There's no reason why I should or shouldn't believe the charges against her are true, although based on my experience of dealing with Syrian bloggers, especially female Syrian bloggers, then naivety rather than any malice is probably the cause of her predicament.
If I am against apartheid in South Africa that does not mean I would have been caught dead wandering into a township. Even though I support Hezbullah and the Resistance, and recently visited the South of Lebanon, I avoided Hezbullah checkpoints like the plague for reasons which are obvious to anybody who knows me personally. And just because I have Che Guevara's face printed on a mug in my study, that doesn't mean I would have gone off to the jungle to meet him as he would probably have hung me by the balls, or I would have died of malaria. What I mean by all this is that politics isn't a game and these people don't have a sense of humour, nor do they have time for starry-eyed Palestine groupies who talk too much. Poor thing.
