No one in Israel has ever said that

Especially if their Hebrew teacher can hear them. It should be פוחד

To clarify. The Hebrew sentence is grammatical and people use that form, but it is one of those cases that teachers like to correct. The "pi-el building" is used for forceful actions, not for feelings.

Downloading is not the same thing as streaming. I'm sure a lot of people in Israel say that. If you aren't downloading movies to view through a subscription service (or bought through official channels) most of the time you're downloading them illegally.

אֲנִי גם לֹא מַאֲמִין לוֹ. הוּא לֹא מְפַחֵד לִמְכּוֹר מקלדות בַּשּׁוּק הַשָּׁחוֹר וְהוּא מְפַחֵד לְהוֹרִיד סְרָטִים? זֶה לֹא הֶגְיוֹנִי.
