13 June 1656 Jews return to England

The last couple of days I have heard mention on BBC Radio of this anniversary of Oliver Cromwell allowing the Jews to return to England. However, in line with either its usual secularist bias or out of ignorance I have not heard mention of the main reason Oliver wanted the Jews in England. All I have heard is the economic reason. Cromwell's real reason? Oliver believed that before Christ returns the Jews must be converted. How could they be converted without hearing the gospel? He had them return to England so they could hear the gospel.
