Why would anyone oppose the PLO flag being flown next to the American flag?

Via Chicago Tribune:

A Monday night meeting over a Palestinian flag in north suburban Lincolnwood was intense but civil much of the way before emotions spilled over among some in attendance, with one man leaving after being chastised by the mayor.

The flag that was the subject of heated debate is part of a display of about 60 international flags along Lincoln Avenue that stretches from Devon to Touhy. Several residents have recently asked that the Palestinian flag be removed, but village officials say they have no plans to do so. Community members spoke in favor of and against the flag before the village’s human relations committee.

The meeting briefly devolved into yelling toward the end.

“We’ve seen on television there are Palestinian mothers teaching their children from their youth to murder, to hate, to blow yourself up, anything for the cause,” said resident Sherry Friedman. She was asked to sit down by Mayor Gerald Turry and complied.
