Nobody likes his national identity to be identified with terrorism.

It’s a matter of pride and identity and many Iranians in the US feel hurt when their country is branded as "terrorist".

The US administration has been calling Iran a leading sponsor of terrorism for several years now.

But Iran has not been involved in any terrorist outrage against the West anywhere in the world.

The accusation is more about propaganda than anything else
