"Everybody feels good, that finally, maybe, the party is acknowledging us," Judeh said, referring to the 55-member Arab American delegation at the convention.
While Judeh was not on the floor for the vote at the time, she said she would have yelled "no" if she were present.
Kalimah Salahuddin, a 36-year-old delegate from Pacifica, California, said she voted against it because she felt like it needed further discussion.
"I was actually pretty surprised. I thought I was going to be the only one in saying no in California," she said.
She, like many, said it was too difficult to tell if there really was a two-thirds vote.
"I just don't know if it was two-thirds people or two-thirds louder" on the third vote, she said.
The flap, according to Democratic strategist and CNN political contributor Paul Begala, was "embarrassing, stupid" and "an unforced error by my party." Ari Fleischer, a former White House press secretary in the George W. Bush administration who also is a CNN contributor, said the issue reflected a split among Democrats over support for Israel.
Jim Zogby, the president of the Arab American Institute, wrote in a statement that he was "disappointed in the irregularities of the procedure."
"This effort hurts the president and it hurts chances for a lasting peace," Zogby continued. "I am, however, proud that so many delegates delivered a resounding no."
