Figures.

This bunch, the Society of St. Pius X, is going out of its way to reaffirm its anti-semitism and to cement its schism.

Good thing Priebke didn't die on Benedict XVI's watch.  It would have been a PR disaster, given that Benedict bent over backward to welcome these weirdos back.

Priebke's boss, SS Obersturmbannfuehrer Herbert Kappler ws smuggled out of an Italian prison in a suitcase by his wife [he weighed 91 lbs and was dying of cancer. Kappler, an SD officer was Gestapo Chief of Rome when Italian partisans killed 30 members of an SS police battalion marching through Rome.

Hitler ordered Rome destroyed, Himmler wanted several thousand Romans killed in reprisal, but a number of ten to one was eventually decided on. When the Army [and Waffen SS] refused to do the killing, Kappler and his detachment were ordered  to handle it. Kappler, Priebke and the rest of the Gestapo/SD detachment took Jewish prisoners, political prisoners to the Ardeantine Caverns [a catacomb], and shot them in small groups. ALL members of the group participated in the shootings. The entrance toi the caves were then dynamited.

At least three Germans expected top die recovered. This led, as only theGermans could do, to a series of correspondence between Berlin and Rome over who was responsible for the extra 35 bodies [since only 300 dead were authorized]. Kappler was a major figure in at least two movies. In one, "The Red and the Black", he was played by Christopher Plummer. It starred Gregory Peck as a Catholic Monsiegneur working with the underground. The priest Peck played got Kappler's family to Switzerland after Rome fell to the Allies, and converted Kappler to Roman Catholicism in prison, where he visited Kappler regularly.

Funeral called off.

Nazi war criminal Priebke's funeral halted amid protests

The funeral service for Nazi war criminal Erich Priebke in Italy has been halted amid angry protests.

More than 500 people in the city of Albano Laziale shouted "murderer" and "executioner", and clashed with Nazi sympathisers, as his coffin passed.

The former German SS officer, who was jailed for life in 1998 over the killing of more than 300 civilians, died under house arrest last week.

His death led to fierce debate over what to do with his body.

That question remains after the funeral was suspended on Tuesday evening.

The exact reason for halt in the ceremony is unclear, although Priebke's lawyer, Paolo Giachini, said it had been stopped because the authorities had prevented friends and family entering.

The agency quoted Mr Giachini as saying that the funeral was "a moment of mourning" that had nothing to do with politics.

Priebke was one of the SS officers present during the killing of men and boys at Rome's Ardeatine Caves in 1944, in a reprisal attack ordered by Adolf Hitler for the killing of 33 German soldiers in Rome by resistance fighters.

He died aged 100 and had never apologised for his actions.

The Vatican had issued an unprecedented ban on holding the funeral in any Catholic church in Rome.

Argentina, where Priebke lived for nearly 50 years before being extradited to Italy, has refused to take the body.

But the Society of St Pius X - a Catholic splinter group often accused of having far-right and anti-Semitic leanings - offered to hold the ceremony.

Don Floriano Abrahamowicz, a St Pius X priest, told Italy's Radio 24: "Priebke was a friend of mine, a Christian, a faithful soldier."
