Pacifist in America jumped off cliff (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

dove

Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'pacifist' is the first definition.

(dove is a kind of pacifist)

'in america jumped off cliff' is the second definition.

(past tense of 'dive' in American English)

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for dove that I've seen before include "Bird; advocate of peace", "Mourning, collared, bird", "(Peaceful) bird", "Bird representing peace", "Pigeon-like bird", "The bird of peace", "Peaceful type", "A peaceful bird?", "So-called pacifist" and "Small pigeon".)
