Holocaust deniers and Israel bashers are promoting conspiracy theories on the Internet about Jewish or Israeli involvement in the the Columbia space shuttle disaster, according to the Anti- Defamation League. Several conspiracy theorists suggest that the shuttle accident was staged by Israel and America to distract attention from events in the Mideast. Others suggest that Col. Ilan Ramon, the Israeli who perished along with six NASA astronauts on the mission, was really a spy who was collecting information on Iraq, according to the ADL.
