I was leaning towards "Just like...".

What are the rules for the us of 'like' on the GMAT ? Is it accepted at all ?

Tough one!!

I guess A....

(B) "while" means "although", which doesn't make sense in the context of this sentence
(C) Should be "just as"....
(D) Similarly should be similar
(E) changes the meaning of the sentence

A for me as well,

Use "as" when providing examples and like when comparing two nouns. Here the Crusaders and French are two examples of groups the Syrians have yet to forgive.
