Moderate Syrian opposition

"Since three years, much of the "western" reporting from Syria is actually done from Beirut. Why has none ever asked this simple question: "all violent opposition movements have been found in Lebanon, even the Syrian IS, but no Syrian said that he represents 'a moderate Syrian opposition.' If Beirut, which is open to all political, media and even military movements, is devoid of any — even a symbolic — presence of 'the moderate Syrian opposition,' then how could such forces exist in Syria itself?""
