While I cannot speak for the Europeans, I can speak as an American when I ask "How on earth do you know what the "general sentiment" of the American people is? On the contrary, many, if not most, Americans support Israel and the support grows by the minute. I surmise that you watch too much media clap-trap in your country. And, this large section of the American population would whole-heartedy recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. You speak of withdrawing your support of Israel after the Cast Lead Operation, due to the harm done to civilians and children (many were used as human shields) but you choose to ignore the murders of innocent Jewish civilians and children who were purged from their lands in the past,not to mention the constant bombings and rocket attacks are occurring in the present.
