Out-played, out-ran, out-shone. There are not enough verbs to describe how the leader of a pea-sized country leapfrogged over the most important politician on the planet to deliver a damning indictment of a world louse that is deceiving its way to a nuclear bomb, and promoting violence to achieve its depraved dream to enslave us in a sadistic caliphate straight out of the dark ages.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu showed President Obama how to be a true leader when he spoke to Congress about the global menace of the Islamic Republic of Iran, departing refreshingly from Bam’s teleprompted slobberings with a cohesive call to halt Iran’s nuclear program, in a speech crackling with standing ovations and applause.

Some highlights:

• “The greatest threat against the world is the marriage of militant Islam with nuclear weapons.” Check.

• In this deadly game of thrones, there’s no place for America or for Israel, no peace for Christians, Jews, or Muslims who don’t share the Islamist medieval creed, no rights for women, no freedom for anyone.” Check.

America designates Iran a state sponsor of terrorism, but that is only part of the disgrace. Iran’s revolutionary guards — the backbone of its sordid structure — brutally enforce repressive policies and morality laws. Its paramilitary Quds Force trains terrorists abroad and carries out global assassinations. Its top nut job — the morally bankrupt supreme ayatollah — routinely tweets about the “arrogance” of America and annihilating Israel, while Iranian jailers rape male prisoners, Iranian women are stoned to death, and Iranian children suffer tortures as sex slaves.

Last week, the rotten regime deliberately blinded a man and hanged six political prisoners in back-to-back demonstrations of its inhumanity. Yet President Obama will have rewarded Iran’s barbarities with $11.9 billion in cash assets by the time the nuclear talks end in June.

Exiled Iranian critic and author Azar Nafisi once claimed, “Living in the Islamic Republic is like having sex with someone you loathe.”

Consider life under a nuked-up Iran a virtual gang rape — every day.
