FRANKFURT, GERMANY FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) _ A youth organization appealed today for a boycott of Tom Cruise's movie "Mission Impossible," because the American actor is a Scientologist.

The call came a day after a leading politician said German authorities should put the Los Angeles-based Church of Scientology under observation as an extremist group.

German Chancellor Helmut Kohl's government says the organization has aims that threaten democracy and is not a church but a business enterprise with some traits of organized crime.
