Just How Exactly Did Sheldon Adelson Become Such a Big Supporter of Israel?

According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, which Adelson just purchased, while doing a profile on their new owner write:
His wife, Israel-born medical doctor Miriam Ochshorn Adelson, 70, helps run the Adelson Family Foundation, which says it supports causes such as Holocaust and anti-Semitism awareness; advocacy and defense of Israel; Jewish and Zionist identity and education; and Israel studies on college campuses....

"Sheldon and I share the same vision and beliefs, although we come from two different backgrounds,'' she told Fortune magazine..."We are in full agreement on the causes we support, whether they are helpless people, drug addicts or young people looking for roots in Israel. We don't have arguments, or long discussions; it's quite a fast discussion bearing in mind our common values."

Fortune added that it "seems clear" that Miriam Adelson "helped bring her husband to the Israeli cause."

The Adelsons met on a blind date in 1988, according to a 2014 profile in Hadassah magazine. Sheldon Adelson proposed within 100 days, the story said, and the couple married in 1991.
