When they read about what is going on in the country of their birth, Venezuela, Debbie and Daniel Horowitz are happier than ever that they decided to make aliya three years ago and now live in Kfar Saba with their six-year-old son, Yoel.
"There has always been a certain level of anti-Semitism there, but now it's more than usual," says Debbie. "The people themselves are friendly and it was more on a government level, as it sees Iran and Cuba as partners."
They always knew they would come to Israel and they came for Zionist reasons rather than because they were running away from any threat.
"We are worried for our friends there, but we try not to get emotionally involved," Daniel says. "We want to put all our energies into succeeding in Israel."
