just as

Post by navit »

Are all these sentences correct:

1) Just as he hates me, I hate him.
2) Like he hates me, I hate him.

3) Just as he behaves politely towards you, you should behave politely towards him.
4) Like he behaves politely towards you, you should behave politely towards him.

Gratefully,
Navi

Only #1&3 are standard ('like' is not a conjunction).
