Why is anti-Jewry more prevalent among Europeans than Americans?

Islamist's Media-Managing Success Wins European Hearts Against Israel
Britain's The Economist attempts to explain: Why has Europe become so reflexively anti-Israel, just when America has become so reflexively pro-Israel?

The European Union is supposed to have traded in war, nationalism and conflict for love, peace and federalism. But Israel now reminds Europeans of darker forces and darker days.
Attitudes to America have also clouded European views, especially on the left. As Israel has drawn closer to America in the past few decades, the left's antipathy towards the behemoth of capitalism has spilled into dislike of Israel.
