ZB 304

The 300-foot × 90-foot × 18.5-foot US-flagged, ABS Ocean deck barge ZB 304 was “heavy-built” in 1982 for Zidell Barges by Bergeron Industries with a spoon bow and stern rake integrating three longitudinal and seven transverse bulkheads and using ​1⁄2-inch sides and bottom plate and ​5⁄8-inch deck plate. ZB 304 was lost under tow in 1997 as a result of a parted towline and grounded during heavy weather near Alsek River in the Gulf of Alaska 38 miles east of Yakutat, Alaska. A salvage crew was dispatched by air to the casualty to evaluate the situation and prepare the barge for refloating. M/V Salvage Chief, operated by Fred Divine Diving and Salvage Company, responded from Astoria, Oregon with specialized salvage gear, transferred by helicopter and connected to fittings installed on ZB 304. Three six-ton salvage anchors were deployed and three tow lines were connected to ZB 304, refloated and towed to Yakutat; the cargo was transferred to a second barge and delivered to its destination by Dunlap Towing Company.

The barge was declared a total loss but over $3 million worth of cargo and equipment was saved through the efforts of Fred Divine Diving and Salvage Company. ZB 304 was towed back to Puget Sound where the American Construction Company of Everett, Washington refitted the barge and sold it in 2005 to Magone Marine Services of Dutch Harbor, Alaska where it serves as floating dock Denali. Marcon International Incorporated of Coupeville, Washington was the broker in the sale

Yitzhak Shamir

Yitzhak Shamir was an Israeli politician and the seventh Prime Minister of Israel, serving two terms, 1983–84 and 1986–1992. Before the establishment of the state of Israel, Shamir was a leader of the Zionist militant group Lehi. After the establishment of the Israeli state he served in the Mossad between 1955 and 1965, as a Knesset Member, a Knesset Speaker and a Foreign Affairs Minister. Shamir was the country's third longest-serving prime minister after David Ben-Gurion and Benjamin Netanyahu. Yitzhak Yezernitsky was born in the predominantly Jewish village of Ruzhany, Grodno province, Russian Empire, which after World War I returned to Poland, as the son of Perla and Shlomo, owner of a leather factory; those close to Shamir noted that "he recalls his childhood and youth in Belarus." Shamir moved to Białystok and studied at a Hebrew high school network. As a youth, he joined the Revisionist Zionist youth movement, he studied law at the University of Warsaw, but cut his studies short to immigrate to what was Mandatory Palestine.

Shamir once stated that "every Pole sucked anti-Semitism with his mother's milk." The comment caused controversy within Poland as being libellous. The Polish writer and former resistance fighter Jan Nowak-Jeziorański commented: "To conclude from the 1941 pogroms that the Holocaust was the common work of Poles and Germans is a libel. All who feel themselves to be Polish have the responsibility to defend themselves against such slander; the majority of Polish society might be charged with having an attitude of indifference to the extermination of the Jews—if not for the fact that the entire civilized world reacted to the fact of genocide with indifference and passivity. The difference is that Poles were eyewitnesses, defenceless witnesses living in constant fear for their lives and the lives of their families."His parents and two sisters died during the Holocaust. Shamir claimed his father was killed just outside his birthplace in Ruzhany by villagers, his childhood friends, after he had escaped from a German train transporting Jews to the death camps, though this was never confirmed.

His mother and a sister died in the concentration camps, another sister was shot dead. Shamir once told Ehud Olmert that when his father, living under Nazi occupation, had been informed that the extermination of the Jews was imminent, his father had replied that "I have a son in the Land of Israel, he will exact my revenge on them". According to an obituary, he had dreamed of living in the Land of Israel since he was a boy, felt at home when he would move there. In 1935, Shamir emigrated to Palestine, he adopted as his surname the name he used on a forged underground identity card, Shamir. He told his wife this was because Shamir means a rock that can cut steel. In 1944 he married Shulamit, whom he met in a detention camp when she migrated to Mandate Palestine from Bulgaria by boat in 1941 and was incarcerated because she entered the territory illegally, they had two children and Gilada. Shulamit died on July 29, 2011. Shamir joined the Irgun Zvai Leumi, a Zionist paramilitary group that opposed British control of Palestine.

When the Irgun split in 1940, Shamir joined the more militant faction Lehi known as the Stern Gang, headed by Avraham Stern. Shamir was imprisoned by British authorities in 1941. A few months after Stern was killed by the British in 1942, Shamir and Eliyahu Giladi hid under a stack of mattresses in a warehouse of the detention camp at Mazra'a, at night escaped through the barbed wire fences of the camp. Shamir, together with Giladi, Anshell Shpillman and Yehoshua Cohen, reorganized the movement into cells and trained its members. In his memoirs, Shamir admitted in 1994 what had long been suspected: that the killing of Giladi in 1943 was ordered by Shamir himself due to Giladi advocating the assassination of David Ben-Gurion, arguing for other violence deemed too extremist by fellow Stern members. In 1943, he became one of the three leaders of the group, serving with Nathan Yellin-Mor and Israel Eldad. Shamir sought to emulate the anti-British struggle of the Irish Republicans and took the nickname "Michael" after Irish Republican leader Michael Collins.

Shamir plotted the 1944 assassination of Lord Moyne, British Minister for Middle East Affairs, selected Eliyahu Hakim and Eliyahu Bet-Zuri to carry it out. Moyne had been targeted due to his perceived role as an architect of British restrictions on Jewish immigration to Palestine, in particular, the Patria disaster, blamed on him. In July 1946, Shamir was arrested, he had been walking in public in disguise and a British police sergeant, T. G. Martin, recognized him by his bushy eyebrows. Arrested, he was exiled to Africa, interned in Eritrea by British Mandatory authorities. Lehi members subsequently tracked down and killed Martin in September 1946. On January 14, 1947, Shamir and four Irgun members escaped the Sembel Prison through a tunnel they had dug, 200 feet in length, Mayer Malka of Khartoum subsequently arranged for them to be hidden in an oil truck for three days as it was driven over the border to French Somaliland, they were re-arrested by the French authorities, but Shamir with Malka's assistance, was allowed passage to France and granted political asylum.

Lehi sent him a forged passport, with which he entered Israel after the Israeli Declaration of Independence in 1948. During the Israeli War of Independence, most of Lehi's members joined the newly formed Israel Defense Forces. Lehi formally disbanded on
