Marjorie Taylor Greene tried to censure Rashida Tlaib, accusing her of "leading an insurrection."
Tlaib had addressed pro-Palestinian protesters as they held a sit-in at a Capitol Hill office building.
Twenty-three House Republicans joined Democrats to table Greene's resolution.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's attempt to censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib failed on Wednesday — in part thanks to three of Tlaib's home-state Republican colleagues.
A majority of the Republican-led House voted to table the Georgia Republican's censure resolution, which accused the Michigan Democrat of being antisemitic, sympathizing with terrorists, and "leading an insurrection."
Twenty-three Republicans voted with every Democrat to table Greene's resolution.
The Georgia congresswoman notably has her own history of antisemitic pronouncements and once suggested that Tlaib was not a legitimate member of Congress because she was sworn in with a Quran rather than a Bible.
The resolution relied on several mischaracterizations of Tlaib's past comments and positions, including suggesting that she felt a "calming feeling" when thinking of the Holocaust and characterizing her criticism of Israel as antisemitic.
Tlaib, the sole Palestinian-American in Congress, has indeed irked some of her Jewish colleagues by describing Israel as an apartheid state — a term employed by several international human-rights organizations.
The resolution also characterized a sit-in protest on Capitol Hill led by two Jewish anti-Zionist groups — IfNotNow and Jewish Voice for Peace — as an "insurrection."
The October 19 protest included a large crowd outside the Capitol and a sit-in in the rotunda of the Cannon House Office Building. Tlaib spoke to the crowd outside.

While Republicans are often quick to criticize Tlaib, Greene's resolution apparently went too far for some of them, and a handful appeared to make their opposition clear in the days before the vote.
Notably, half of the Republicans in Michigan voted to table the resolution.
