I may be wrong, but I believe chauffeur is another correct translation for sofőr (hence the phonetic spelling).

Yes, you have right. Report it.

[disclaimer, this is not a political point]

What would be the Hungarian word for Palestinian?

No point in reiterating, but Ben Nealy is much more diplomatic than I would have been re Sofor/Chauffeur/Driver.

Israelian doesn't work

Yes, because that's not the common word in English.

See e.g. http://www.dictionary.com/misspelling?term=israelian

As someone from Israel:

How is that a mistake you could make?
