Lots of Jewish stuff from the Vatican this week

First we have a new book about the relationship of the Church and Judaism.

Then we have a statement that the Pope is supporting the G-8 in the Mideast, calling for everyone to stop fighting.

On Sunday, when praying the Angelus in Les Combes, the village where he is spending these days of rest, the Holy Father said that "at the origin of these cruel oppositions there are, sadly, objective situations of violation of law and justice."

"But neither terrorist acts nor reprisals, above all when there are tragic consequences for the civilian population, can be justified," he said. "On such paths -- as bitter experience demonstrates -- one does not arrive at positive results."

The question I have, then, is what is ius ad bellum?, exactly.
