Hi Michael
Yes, that is a problem. The final URL absolutely MUST be the url the user lands on and can see in their address bar. The display URL needs to be the same root domain.

If you want to pass something through a redirect for tracking, use the tracking template feature.

Finally, your website, in my opinion, does not comply with many of the AdWords policies. I'd have a VERY THOROUGH read through them all before trying to advertise this site.
