"I am working on a plan to make (tourist rocket sport) in Libya and open the door for the world amateur rocketry to come over and shoot their rockets with me on the Libyan desert and by the sea side..."
I have to admit that I get bad flashbacks when I think about amateur rockets in Libya considering the violence last year, not to mention the typical role of rockets in northern Africa, but if the goals of this association are to practice rocketry for the sake of science and exploration, it is a good thing. Before I hold Libya to excessively high standards, let's not forget that American rocketry started (and remains) largely a military matter. Maybe if more people flew rockets for hobby, the World would be better.
