President Soetoro is apparently furious that PM Netanyahu thinks the time is not right for a "two state solution." But who rejected a "two state solution" in the first place? In 1947, the United Nations proposed a "two state solution" for that remnant of the pre-WW2 British Mandate of Palestine which remained after 2/3 of the Mandate was taken to create the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

From the Wikipedia:

The United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine was a proposal developed by the United Nations, which recommended a partitionwith Economic Union of Mandatory Palestine to follow the termination of the British Mandate. On 29 November 1947, the U.N.General Assembly adopted a resolution recommending the adoption and implementation of the Plan as Resolution 181(II).[2]The resolution recommended the creation of independent Arab and Jewish States and the Special International Regime for the City of Jerusalem. The Partition Plan, a four-part document attached to the resolution, provided for the termination of the Mandate, the progressive withdrawal of British armed forces and the delineation of boundaries between the two States and Jerusalem. Part I of the Plan stipulated that the Mandate would be terminated as soon as possible and the United Kingdom would withdraw no later than 1 August 1948. The new states would come into existence two months after the withdrawal, but no later than 1 October 1948. The Plan sought to address the conflicting objectives and claims of two competing movements: Arab nationalism in Palestine and Jewish nationalism, known as Zionism.[3][4] The Plan also called for Economic Union between the proposed states, and for the protection of religious and minority rights.
The Plan was accepted by the Jewish public, except for its fringes, and by the Jewish Agency despite its perceived limitations.[5][6]Arab leaders and governments rejected the plan of partition in the resolution[7] and indicated an unwillingness to accept any form of territorial division.[8] Their reason was that it violated the principles of national self-determination in the UN charter which granted people the right to decide their own destiny.[6][9]Immediately after adoption of the Resolution by the General Assembly, the civil war broke out.[10] The partition plan was not implemented.[11]
Not only did the Arabs reject the "two state solution," the war they started was launched with the express intention of genocidally killing all of the Jews and driving them into the sea.

That is still the jihadist goal:

Iranian General Mohammad Raza Nakdi commented on the ongoing international negotiations by saying that his country's goal of eliminating Israel is not negotiable. 

PM Netanyahu is not the one blocking a "two state solution" The Jewish people in Israel have accepted the idea of a "two state solution" for over 60 years.
