Jerusalem (CNN)Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his allies are dragging out the political process, seeking to undermine a new government set to remove him from power, as the head of the Israel Security Agency warned of incitement to violence in the charged environment.

"We are witnessing the greatest election fraud in the history of the country, in my opinion in the history of any democracy," Netanyahu said Sunday to lawmakers from his right-wing Likud party.

On Sunday, a member of Netanyahu's Likud party compared Naftali Bennett, the man set to replace Netanyahu, to a "suicide bomber. "

Netanyahu has focused his ire on a broken campaign promise by Bennett, head of the small right-wing Yamina party.

Bennett said that members of his Yamina party and the New Hope party -- two right-wing parties taking part in the unity coalition -- have been the target of a campaign "aimed at breaking them," including curses and threats, in order to collapse the new government.

While calling for the swearing-in of the new government to take place on Wednesday, Bennett placed the blame at the feet of Netanyahu for the charged discourse.

A member of Netanyahu's Likud party and one of the prime minister's key allies, May Golan, on Sunday compared the mission of Bennett and New Hope leader Gideon Saar of being "suicide bombers" and "terrorists. "
