My idea of a wet dream is: Israel invades GB with totally gay forces — all married to each other (same sex, of course) — and they take km hostage after trampling his little "garden" and force him to march at the head of a Gay Pride parade!

You're quite right that the name 'Israel' is officially recognised by that Resolution
Actually, it specifically recognizes the State of Israel:
"Having received the report of the Security Council on the application of Israel for membership in the United Nations,1/
Noting that, in the judgment of the Security Council, Israel is a peace-loving State and is able and willing to carry out the obligations contained in the Charter,
Noting that the Security Council has recommended to the General Assembly that it admit Israel to membership in the United Nations,
Noting furthermore the declaration by the State of Israel that it "unreservedly accepts the obligations of the United Nations Charter and undertakes to honour them from the day when it becomes a Member of the United Nations",2/
Recalling its resolutions of 29 November 1947 3/ and 11 December 1948 4/ and taking note of the declarations and explanations made by the representative of the Government of Israel 5/ before the ad hoc Political Committee in respect of the implementation of the said resolutions,
The General Assembly,
Acting in discharge of its functions under Article 4 of the Charter and rule 125 of its rules of procedure,
1. Decides that Israel is a peace-loving State which accepts the obligations contained in the Charter and is able and willing to carry out those obligations;
2. Decides to admit Israel to membership in the United Nations."
The language could not be more clear.
Wether or not Israel has actually lived-up to the assessments made in that resolution, or has indeed acted in accordance with its obligations under the UN charter and resolutions is another matter entirely -- but I don't think the existence of Israel as a State is really debatable if you're using UN membership as the criterion for Statehood ...
I don't think anyone cares what the Jewish State is called but of course the question arises as to its boundaries. In my opinion states depending on a UN resolution for recognition exist only within the boundaries accepted by the UN - otherwise it's not a state at all.
