The fallout from the UK election has revealed deep shifts in Muslim and Jewish voting patterns. Some Muslim voters feel that the Labour Party has an anti-Muslim bias and does not take accusations of racism, including Islamophobia, seriously. They point to instances such as the suspension and readmission of Trevor Phillips, who was accused of Islamophobia. Muslim voters also criticize Keir Starmer's comments about migrants being sent back to their countries of origin. On the other hand, Jewish voters have expressed concerns about the Labour Party's stance on Israel and its recognition of a Palestinian state. They believe that criticism of Israel was wrongly conflated with antisemitism during the Corbyn era.
