Nietzsche hated the Jews, and their God which is seen in his statements of “God is dead” and referring to Jews as slaves.
The idea of slavery was only an issue of good/bad --- that of being beneficial or detrimental to the masters. The Jews brought a sense of morality to slavery --- making slavery inherently evil.
The Jews changed the definition of poor and servitude to that of goodness and righteousness to assert their own version of power over their masters.
