Following Martin Kramer's recommendation I heard the above included interview, with the:
"splendid exchange (at min. 20) between British author Anthony Julius, whose history of English antisemitism has been published by Oxford, and WNYC's talk show host Leonard Lopate. Lopate recycles NPR-style claims about Israel. Julius (a cool customer): 'All of that's completely untrue. I ...don't think there's a single statement that you've made that's true.' Listen to it all."
As a matter of fact I listened to the whole interview (30'). Anthony Julius, attorney of Lady Di in her divorce, has an extremely calm, firm, soothing and compelling voice, and a very clear mind.

Anthony Julius discusses the history of anti-Semitism in England, beginning with the medieval persecution of Jews to the contemporary anti-Semitism that emerged in the late 1960s dismissing the legitimacy of Zionism and the State of Israel.

His book Trials of the Diaspora: A History of Anti-Semitism in England.
