The Associated Press tells that Israel's government is poised to make a decision about the town of Ghajar, and the New York Times (and others) have published AP's item.
Predictably, the story totally misses the crux of the matter: that the people who live in the town are all Arabs who have acquired Israeli citizenship, and they don't want to be in Lebanon. They want to be in Israel, at least until Israel and Syria reach peace between them (and arguably, also thereafter).
That part wouldn't fit into the meta-narrative, so it doesn't get told.
Israel Nurse wrote about this recently at length, with photos, and Michael Totten wrote some interesting background here, but between you and me: who reads blogs? AP reaches more people in a day than all the political blogs together in five years, even including Andrew Sullivan.
