The countries that are most adversarial towards Israel are the Islamic Countries, with only Turkey and the former Communist countries in Central Asia and Eastern Europe recognizing Israel without issue. (Israel is recognized by three Arab countries - Egypt, Palestine, and Jordan - but those recognitions come with strings attached.) Conversely, there are some Muslim-majority countries that have not made Anti-Zionism a key part of their policy, like Senegal, which maintain strong relations with Israel.

Even Turkey, Egypt, and Palestine, which recognize Israel harbor strong resentment towards it. Other countries that do not recognize Israel like North Korea, Venezuela, Bolivia, and Cuba do so because they have joined the Islamic World as part of the "Anti-Imperialist" coalition. (The coalition makes little sense politically since it is Left-Wing Socialist Regimes partnering with Quasi-Theocratic Right Wing Regimes, but this is the banner.)

Footnote:

Bhutan does not have relations with Israel, but this is because India handles Bhutan's foreign relations. (Bhutan has direct diplomatic contact with fewer than 30 countries.) Bhutan and Israel do have trade and commerce, but these are maintained by the Indian Embassy.
