Who is Dr. Moshe Kantor?
The success of any person lies in the simple truth of personal motivation. 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. In many cases, when people are faced with adversities of life, they choose to retreat and let things happen the way they choose to.
There is, however, another crop of people who rarely choose the easiest option of sitting back and as a result they choose to act in the face of adversity. Dr. Moshe Kantor falls in that crop of individuals. Let us take a look at what might have faced him in his early life and how he rose above the norm to conquer his adversities. We also need to look at the positives that resulted out of his struggles.
At the time of his birth, the countries of the world were still agonizing the aftermath of the world war two. The clutches of the world cold war were also being tightened at around that time. In those days, there was not a single sign of hope for both the aged and the young people of the east. Dr. Moshe, however, chose the path that not so many would take and was able to inspire himself and forge ahead with his life. Because of the path he took those days, today the world can smile and celebrate him.
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. This, coupled with the demoralization of the world war II left the Jewish nation entirely helpless. His lobbying for the proper respect of Jews has been a struggle that is still at work even to this day. The ensuing recognition of his lobbying is nothing that can be dismissed lightly.
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. Being a family man himself, Dr. Kantor has shown us that we should respect the human life regardless of the relationship we may have or not have with such individuals.
Acts of inhumanity such as terrorism and use of fatal weapons usually lead to destruction of much human life as well as property and should thus never be tolerated by anyone. The other consequences that may also arise from such inhumane acts are things that we should also never anticipate to live with. These are some of the lessons that Dr. Kantor tries to put across both in word and deed.
