Where did Nietzsche say or write that? It does sound plausible,
though. It was one of the bizarre ironies of history that Nietzsche,
who died in 1900 and was not anti-Semitic, got his philosophical
legacy co-opted by the Nazis, or more accurately, had it sold to the
Nazis by his sister.

Thanks for that link. The book looks quite interesting; I shall
consider getting a copy. Most philosophers put one to sleep; Nietzsche
does the opposite. And now, he even seems to be making a stab at
politics!

"Nietzsche's writing in the voice of God the Creator, who has
restrained his egoism enough to be content in that role, distressed
Burckhardt. He showed it to another of Nietzsche's friends, Franz
Overbeck, who had also received a letter from Nietzsche, this one
signed "Dionysus" and claiming 'I am just having all anti-Semites
shot.'"

I found this in "Nietzsche as Philosopher" by Arthur C. Danto (The
Macmillan Company, 1965):

"Nietzsche ... was himself not an anti-Semite. There were periods,
or a period, when he was under Wagner's influence ... in which he
voiced the anti-Semitic views of Wagner and of Cosima ... His sister
ried a professional anti-Semite, Bernhard F=F6rster. She was
constantly trying to enlist Nietzsche in their cause ... He never
allowed his philosophy to be so used, and if he was not a pro-Semite,
he was anti-anti-Semitic ... his personal attitude ... was one of
disdain and derision toward anti-Semitism (and toward the concomitant
racial theories)."

Its from "The Portable Nietzsche". I think it was in one of his
letters.
