Iran is still # 1
Iran's religious bigots are at war with the US and have been for about 30 years. They are also at war with Israel and have hostile intentions toward several Arab states including Egypt. Since they are too weak to confront any of these states directly they do so through terrorism. They have several proxies for war with these countries with Hezballah being a major proxy.
Iran remains the "most active state sponsor of terrorism" in the world, a report by the US state department says.
It says Iran's role in the planning and financing of terror-related activities in the Middle East and Afghanistan threatens efforts to promote peace.
Al-Qaeda, however, remains the biggest danger to the US and the West, the annual report states.
It says that while the number of terror attack around the world is dropping, they are on the increase in Pakistan.
