Agree that the call or all in option is stupid, both mean the same. About the play, I don't know your positions and number of players in, but against raise 3bet Ax, suited or not, is trash. You have 10bb, wait for a better spot to push, and do it when you are the first in, you will probably only steal the blinds, but blind steal is far more profitable than calling all ins with medium strength aces.

Back to the point in question, I'd like to point out that even without the middle raise the OP is still on a folding spot. An early pos raise is very strong, and you still can survive almost a full orbit with your shortstack
with the rather limited information you give us, i can reply nothing other that "FOLD".
But I would have liked for you to describe the circumstances a bit more, then perhaps my answer would be different. Important things aren't mentioned, like : * is this a cash game or an MTT ? * is this Pre-flop or Post-flop ? * do you have any kind of info on the opponent ? (loose, tight, bluffer, etc.)
I just want to say that there's much more to evaluating a question like this. you make it sound too easy, but in reality things can differ immensely depending on the situation and the kind of game.

Ofc fold... i don't really like AJ / AQ / AK... I only push them if i am first one to act never after someone because nearly every time they have better cards and if not they have nearly same cards and i don't like the coin flips either.

You got to fold really. Raise and re-raise in front of you makes this a fold...defo. Unless you have stupid amounts more chips than they have,,,,, but you dont so bin it! AJs is very easyly dominated if there are a lot of hands you dont want to be up against its prob not worth risking your chips, its about risk and reward.
Stupid poll????? NO
You got to see that some people are asking questions that they need answers to they need others intervention to achive there own greatness. Let them ask the easy questions and build there confidance to play better. If they dont ask they wont know.

I think here the minimum you should have (and its really a minimum... and even this minimum will often be beaten) is AK suited. Anyway, i think i would call here with K's or A's, maybe Q's, but not even sure (there it depend of the way they played during the last hands)
