Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he is not about to be replaced and insisted he has nothing to fear, The Jerusalem Post reported.

The Post story is based on a report by Kan, the Israeli Public Broadcasting Corporation site. Portions of it were translated from Hebrew to English by the Post.

In the story, Netanyahu lashed out at the press, the opposition and members of his own party for trying to get him out of office.

"They are trying to get me and attempting to topple the right," Netanyahu told senior officials in his coalition, according to the Post. "This is not new. They have been trying for many years. I don't see us going to elections now.

"It's not like I am going tomorrow and they are going to replace me. I don't know what they want from me. I have nothing to fear. I don't think I have a problem."

He also accused Transportation Minister Israel Katz of trying to undermine him.

The New York Times reported Netanyahu has been under investigation in cases involving illicit gifts and backroom dealings with a newspaper magnate in an attempt to win favorable coverage.

The Times noted critics are asking how long he can remain in office.
