Who is Dr. Moshe Kantor?
The things that motivate us from within can make us soar to heights of life that are unimaginable. Our self-drive can be both our greatest strength but it can also be our greatest undoing if we are not well prepared to take advantage of it. More often than not, whenever people come face to face with the challenges of life, they opt for the easier choice of shrinking back and let the course of nature take control of their lives.
However, there is also another class of people who choose to be rare and thus opt to face the hurdles head on. Dr. Moshe Kantor belongs to such a group of people. We need to examine the struggles he underwent to become the person he is today. We also need to discuss the fruits of his unending labor in life.
At the time of his birth, the entire world was wailing following the consequences of the much-condemned world war II. The clutches of the world cold war were also being tightened at around that time. Most of the world population in those days would forlornly stare at the amount of destruction that was meted on their counterparts at the East and resign into a desperation that is beyond the words of any writer. Notwithstanding this, Dr. Kantor arose from that forlornness and chose to be different. Owing to his incessant struggles that he portrayed in those days, Dr. Kantor is now someone the world cannot ignore.
The other struggle that Dr. Kantor had to overcome was the reformations in the Jewish world. Persecution for the Jewish people was widespread in those times. Having been hit worst by the consequences of the world war, the Jewish people had nothing to encourage them in such desperate times. His lobbying for the proper respect of Jews has been a struggle that is still at work even to this day. This resulted into the world acknowledging him as a voice for the discriminated people of the world.
The other accomplishment of Dr. Kantor is his fight for the world peace by his strong stand in condemning the evils of terrorism and the use of nuclear weapons. This has proved to the entire world that Dr. Kantor esteems the sanctity of life and he thus holds the life of any human being as close to his heart as that of his own family.
No one should tolerate the use of deadly weapons such as nuclear bombs since they are so destructive to both the human life and the environment. These atrocious activities are never to be condoned by any people since they go against the dictates of all religions where man is viewed as the custodian of the universe. These are some of the lessons that Dr. Kantor tries to put across both in word and deed.
