President Trump just took another courageous and strategically astute step to align U.S. policy with reality in the Mideast, rather than with diplomatic delusions that have, for decades, caused disputes to fester and embolden our enemies, and Israel’s.

As with Mr. Trump’s previous actions relocating the U.S. embassy to Israel’s capital and withdrawing us from the disastrous Iran nuclear deal, his recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights puts America first.

After all, it is in our vital interest to prevent outcomes that would actually have the effect of destabilizing the region, rather than promoting peace — whether in Jerusalem, in Tehran or on this strategic high ground that protects Israel from the chaos in Syria and Iranian forces now being deployed there.

The same is true of Israel’s control over the equally strategic high ground known as the West Bank.
