Marike Veldman at Hadassah Medical Center in Ein Kerem in Jerusalem recently

11 Nov 2015

An elderly Christian woman who was stabbed multiple times during a terrorist attack on a bus in Jerusalem, Israel, that left two people dead and at least 16 others injured says she is convinced she is alive today because she called on Jesus as her attacker plunged his blade into her body.  According to a ‘One for Israel’ report two terrorists boarded the No. 78 bus in the Armon haNatziv neighborhood of Jerusalem, one armed with a knife, the other with a gun. They then began shooting and stabbing the passengers, including Marike Veldman. 

 

Veldman, who is originally from the Netherlands but has lived in Israel for many years, said when the terrorists boarded the bus one of them sat in front of her until things quickly turned ugly. "They began to cry 'Allah Akbar.' The man in front of me began with a knife stabbing into me. The other man started shooting. People screamed very loudly. It was awful. I cried constantly in Dutch: 'Lord Jesus, Lord Jesus! Help me, help me!'" she said. When she did this, she said her attacker "ran away to the back of the bus."
