From Haaretz:

“A non-violent protest of 4,000 people or more, even if they only march to a checkpoint or a settlement, and especially if the Palestinian police does not deter them, will be unstoppable,” one IDF officer claims. “Such a great number of determined people cannot be stopped by tear gas and rubber bullets.”

Speaking of the import of nonviolence, I believe the Flotilla activists are bearing in the mind the lessons learned in the Mavi Marmara incident. It seems that they are. Check out the video:
