They might give you part of the fee back.
They stopped covering Israel when they switched insurance providers on 06/01 to one that gives primary coverage, but doesn't cover Israel.

No.

If you never activated your card, how about: "I never received my card", this should for sure, reimburse your fee, and as damages give you some cheaper/free/better someting else?

I called to have my fee refunded and they said they will get back to me in writing. They dont have any free wmc to offer.

I spoke to Chase a few times and no luck getting my fee back.

They claim that all MasterCard world cards no longer covers Israel due to a change in MasterCard policy not Chase or Continental

They lied.  Only the Continental Chase WMC doesn't cover Israel.  Every other WMC does.

I applied for and got the penfed amex card. I asked for the benefit guide (which doesnt come with the card for some reason) so they printed it out and mailed it. It lists coverage for rental cars, worldwide. There are no exclusions as far as I could tell of any countries.
One thing it does exclude are "loss of use" claims. I'm not sure if the israeli companies charge that or not.
Anyone else know about this?

Unless the rental agency in Israel knows your card specifically includes Israel (like most World Mastercards) they can still force you to take out CDW.

Try to get in writing that Israel is included.

 I can say w/o a Doubt that Avis Israel will Only accept a WMC , if a person can get it in writing that another CC will cover the CDW I advise sending the info in before you get over there and with enough time for them to contact whatever Ins or CC it is to Verify that they will cover You for CDW, otherwise I agree with Dan (after I told him a # of times in the past) that either you agree to pay for the CDW they offer you or "No Car for You"

 having something that says you are covered Im afraid wont cut it as ask SF its too easy to print up whatever you want to today , they will want to have it verified from those who will be covering it for you, and picking up a car 7 hrs ahead of NY means most likley nobody will be able to fax or tell them its covered when they call the US

well, by my last rental at avis tlv, they told me that my wmc doesnt cover me anymore. when i still insisted it does, i had to sign a paper stating that i think my cc covers me. i cant imagine then why it should be different with another card

"I can't imagine", "Israel", and "rental car" should never be used in the same post. Last time I rented, my total didn't equal the rate I was quoted, the guy told me they charge $3 a day WMC insurance (he totally made it up on the spot, but that's sort of my point)

Something to keep in mind when renting, even in the US. Reps get commission on insurance sold. Since all rental card companies have their cars fully insured, the insurance charge is pure profit, so they offer heavy incentives to their agents. I was once in the back office of an enterprise location, and there was a huge board, like the sales bored at car dealerships, with each employees name and how many "policies" they sold that week (or month?). So they may bend the truth a little to get the extra commission.

 Thats great news, BTW when a res was made with Avis over here they still asked if I have a WMC to cover the CDW this was on Tues

  The problem is alot of people dont know that their Chase CO WMC doesnt cover any longer and if like me you used the old card it still worked. So it probably became too time consuming for them to keep track of which CCs still are good and which arent and then trying to get those who have a CC that no longers covers it to believe them that will need to buy their CDW
