I am trying to show that for an elliptic curve $E/K$ with complex multiplication the action of $G_{\overline{K}/ K}$ on the $T_{l}(E)$, the Tate module is abelian.

An approach: Let $\rho$ denote the Galois representation on the (rational) Tate module $(T_{l} \otimes \mathbb{Q}_{l})$.

Complex Multiplication implies that $dim(End(E) \otimes \mathbb{Q}_{l}) \geq 2 $. Since, each element in $End(E)$ acts as a intertwiner of $\rho$.

By Schur's lemma, the representation $\rho$ is evidently reducible. So the irreducible components of $\rho$ are one dimensional and thus the action of $G_{\overline{K}/ K}$ is abelian.

While this is a essentially representation theoretic, is there a more arithmetic proof of this result?
