Two Muslims, one armed with a knife and another with a gun, entered a bus in Jerusalem and began. One of their targets was an elderly Christian woman. The one armed with a knife began stabbing her, and as she was being stabbed, she began to cry out, “Jesus Christ! Jesus Christ! Help me!” Suddenly the knife attacker ran away to the back of the bus. Here is the story:
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 on Tuesday, 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 (East Talpiyot) neighborhood of Jerusalem, one armed with a knife, the other with a gun. They then began shooting and stabbing the passengers, including the elderly woman identified as Marike Veldman in a report by Alfred Muller in Reformatorisch Dagblad.
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 ‘Allahu 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 from her bed at the Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem. When she did this, she said her attacker “ran away to the back of the bus.”
