The problem is that Yeshua did not use the fig tree symbolically to represent the nation period.

What Jesus does is use a tree to illustrate " timing." The point is that just like when a "tree" puts forth the buds, the second coming will come rapidly - exactly 3 & 1/2 years from the "event" that is represented by the "tree." It is not the "rebirth of Israel" that triggers the second coming but the Antichrist who triggers the end. This is the "direct" answer by Yeshua to his disciples question concerning the sign of Yeshua's coming. The answer to their question concerning the sign that begins the last days was a Jewish idiom for a world, global, conflict - "nation against nation" - the sign of the end of the age was WW1.

I should have pointed to this verse which Yeshua points to as being similar in "time telling,"

When therefore ye see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let him that readeth understand), then let them that are in Judaea flee unto the mountains: (Matthew 24:15, 16 ASV)

As you can see, the abomination of desolation takes place mid trib by the antichrist and what does it trigger? Fleeing.
