Lior Tirosh apparently can travel through some type of time-dimensional porthole and appear in alternate universes. In this case, Palestine is Palestina, a country in East Africa surrounded by Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.

Tirosh is apparently a detective, or more than that, a prosecutor, who watches and monitors conspirators posing as threats to his East Africa homeland.
