She was not rebuked for antisemitism. Faux outrage over her comments was channeled into congress condemning both antisemitism and anti-Muslim bigotry (and a bunch of other stuff). She voted for it. All Dems voted for it. Most Republicans voted for it.

Some of the Republicans who didn't vote for it, didn't vote for because they wanted it to be a rebuke of Ilhan Omar and this wasn't one. They specifically said they voted against it because it didn't name Omar.

This is a sham cover vote designed to avoid dealing with a rogue member. - Rep. Chip Roy (Tex.)

Here's some other quotes...

Its not about her. Its about these forms of hatred. - Nancy Pelosi

I feel confident that her words were not based on any anti-Semitic attitude. - Nancy Pelosi

"We are tremendously proud to be part of a body that has put forth a condemnation of all forms of bigotry including anti-Semitism, racism and, white supremacy. Our nation is having a difficult conversation and we believe that is great progress." - Ilhan Omar, et. al.
