I Could - Therefore I Am : The Answer

Every Jew is obligated to keep the Shabbos. This individual has just not yet accepted this obligation upon himself. He is thus considered obligated enough to enable him to make kiddush for his friend who has accepted upon himself the sanctity of Shabbos.

However there is no obligation for a Jew who lives in Israel to move to Chutz L'aretz. Therefore he is not considered obligated [even potentially] in the mitzvos of the second day of Yom Tov. That is the reason that a Jew who lives in Israel cannot make Kiddush on the second day of Yom Tov for a Jew who lives outside the land.

thanks :)
