One thing's for sure, European governments' positions on Israel/Palestine are decidedly more pro-Israel, than the consensus of the electorates they are supposed to represent.

According to the 2012 BBC World Service public opinion poll, the percentages of the public who have positive views on Israel in the following countries are:

USA: 50%
France: 20%
UK: 16%
Germany: 16%
Spain: 12%

It would seem the closer to Israel a country is, the less favourably the population is likely to view it.

Here's a good article:
